OzTREKK Bond Law Webinar

Would you like to hear about Bond Law School? Here’s your opportunity to chat with a current Bond Law student Ryan Stubbs.

Ryan is the current president of the Canadian Law Students’ Association at Bond University. Originally from Hamilton, Ontario, Ryan received his undergraduate degree from Carleton University with a major in Law and a minor in English Language and Literature. He has been a member of the CLSA for the past 4 semesters and will be graduating from Bond with a Juris Doctor in April 2019.

According to Ryan, his favourite part of studying in Australia is living by the beach! “Being able to see the ocean from my apartment balcony and walk down to the beach at any time is the best way to unwind after a day of grinding it out in the library.

“After I am finished at Bond, I hope to return to the Toronto area and practice in the area of entertainment law. It is my career goal to work with musicians and other content creators in the entertainment industry.”

What would you like to know about the Juris Doctor program? Ask Ryan! This webinar will be hosted in a Q&A format, so the floor is open to your questions!

When we talk about predeparture preparation, we’re talking about the whole kit and caboodle: understanding your offer letter, learning about OSHC, student visas, money, accommodation options, travel… and more!

We also know that you are about to fly around the globe to the other side of the planet, and while this is an exciting time in your life, it’s also a bit stressful.
