These practicalskills are benefcial or developing a frm oundation or acareer in law, and I am grateul to have had these experiencesduring my time at university.” Lauren Peacock  LLM (Juris Doctor)Current Student   ”I’ve had an extraordinary experience with the Monash JDProgram. There’s something very afrming about fnding yourtribe o thinkers and go-getters - people who motivate you andchallenge you. And I’ve been very privileged to have met themhere at the Monash Law School.It’s not just going to school with people who are nurses, CEOs,und managers, architects, and journalists - all eager or theopportunity to test ideas out together in a seminar-style class;there’s also our lecturers - earnest academics and incisivebarristers. One even wrote the title ‘Maritime Law’ in Halsbury’sLaws o Australia. They steward this peer-learning and arepassionate about equipping their uture colleagues. I’ve had theopportunity to represent Monash interstate at the InternationalMaritime Law Moot and locally at the Michael Kirby ContractLaw Moot. I’m on the Monash Law Review Editorial Committee,and work as a barrister’s legal assistant next door to the MonashUniversity Law Chambers.Monash has trained me well and I have enjoyed clerkships attop-tier law frms (all in the neighbourhood). And looking at our juniors in school, I’m certain they’re going to bring the Monash JDProgram to even greater heights.“I look orward to a lie-long relationship with the school and itsbrilliant support sta, my lecturers and course mates.” Brydon Wang LLM (Juris Doctor)Current Student
