LHA News and Events
The School of Law recently held an Appreciation event where all generous supporters of Law's students were invited to celebrate the success of the Legal Internship and student engagement program.
Five UOW Law students are currently undertaking 4 week internships with top tier local law firms in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia as part of the Law School’s Malaysian Internship Program. The Program is funded through the Federal Government’s New Colombo Plan, which encourages universities to engage in projects that promote study or professional experience in Asia.
We live in a society where we expect our legal system to do justice. Meanwhile, a lot of people are also fascinated by celebrity. The mix of the two can be tricky.
School of Law's, Associate Professor Julia Quilter shares her opinion in The Sydney Morning Herald.
“You can see the direct impact of your work,” she said. “No one ever wants to have to use our services, but it’s great to be able to help people at such a tough time and make a difference to the outcome.”
