Monash Law School Alumni
Professional Practice … was the best thing I’ve done in my law degree so far.

Professional Practice … was the best thing I’ve done in my law degree so far.

The experience above all was rewarding. It was the first time I applied what I learned in clients, communicating clearly and managing client expectations class in a real setting and it sparked my interest in advocacy.

I gained valuable legal administrative skills and became more confident meeting with clients, communicating clearly and managing client expectations.

My supervisor, Janine Hill-Buxton was fantastic … she knew the court system really well and was always approachable and open to questions. You could really pick her brains and learn from her experiences.

Under her supervision, I represented my clients in court on many occasions. Janine equipped us with the skills we needed and gave us her trust.

Benjamin Drinkwater is currently actively pursuing his goal of becoming a Barrister.
