Bachelor of Science with Bachelor of Laws
"[At] Macquarie University I was equipped not only with extensive and deep knowledge of the disciplines of geography and law, but also an ability to apply that knowledge in practical situations. In particular, by studying law in an interdisciplinary fashion, I feel capable of assisting people with questions about what the law is and how it can be reformed so as to deliver more effective and just outcomes for stakeholders."
"I have been able, as a result of my studies at Macquarie University, to secure what are widely regarded as prestigious graduate roles: first, working for a Judge as a tipstaff or legal researcher and secondly, working as a graduate lawyer with a top-tier law firm. These outcomes simply would not have been achieved without the education I received from the exceptional faculty members of the Department of Environment and Geography, and Macquarie Law School."
