Careers and Competitions Night
|Event Name||Careers and Competitions Night|
|Start Date||2 Jun 2016|
A wonderful evening with advice from Justice Nicola Pain, Judith Preston, David Newhouse and Matthew Fraser was held on 2 June 2016. A common theme ran through the speakers talks: pursue your passion. Alongside the careers advice, we hosted our second student paper and presentation competition, this year on the theme of the relationship between environmental justice and human rights. The finalists for the presentation competition, Alex Roussos, Caitlin Polo, Nathan Ricardo and Ashley Avci, all presented their extremely diverse and excellent papers. Nathan’s explosive presentation on the environmental law of war ended up taking the prize in a tight competition. Following this was the papers of Rebecca Hadfield, Victoria Whiteman and Kaitlin Murphy. Kaitlin’s paper on environmental justice in Australian law and policy won this category, closing out a brilliant display from our passionate environmental law professionals and students.
