Questions about Australian law schools? Don’t miss the OzTREKK Study Law Abroad Webinars!

If you’re considering studying law, you know it can be extremely competitive to get into a Canadian law school—and there are very few places available. Not being offered a coveted place often forces some students to rethink their career goals. For others, it just makes them more determined: they begin to look at other options, like studying law abroad.

Don’t forget to register for the upcoming law webinars!

Australian law schools have made a name for themselves in the world rankings arena, many of them placing in the top 50 in the world—and trust us when we say that means something, because there are hundreds of law schools in the world. But studying law in Australia raises a whole new crop of questions: What are the admissions requirements? Do I need the LSAT? What about the NCA exams? What about articling? What happens when I want to practice in Canada?

To help answer these questions and more, OzTREKK has organised three Study Law Abroad webinars.

We know you can’t always attend an in-person seminar, so we’re bringing an Australian law school alum, a current student, and an Australian law school faculty member to you! During the following webinars, you can find out more about what it’s really like to study law in Australia: getting adjusted, campus life, student groups, law program structures, graduating—and of course, practicing in Canada.

Griffith Law School celebrates milestone

From an inaugural cohort of just 75 students in 1992, Griffith Law School has been recognised as one of Queensland’s most influential law schools while maintaining the university’s unwavering commitment to social justice.

Griffith Law School celebrates milestone

Dean of Law Professor Pene Mathew said the school can look back with immense pride as it came together to celebrate at the school’s 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner at Brisbane’s Victoria Park.

“We had a mere five staff members when we first opened the school in 1992 and our small student intake had access to just the one clinical course which was at the Caxton Community Legal Service.

“Today, our students are exposed to a wide range of clinical courses where they can work with clients and are supervised by lawyers in real world legal situations.”

Ranked in the world top 100 law schools in the latest QS Rankings, Griffith Law School is also recognised as a world leader in the discipline of law in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (Shanghai Rankings).

“The result in 2017 which saw us rank 38th in the world, third in Australia and first in Queensland is spectacular, especially for a school that is only a quarter of a century old,” Professor Mathew said.

The 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner has brought together a who’s who of the legal fraternity both locally and nationally. Senior members of the judiciary and the legal profession were guests with the Honourable Margaret McMurdo AC taking the stage as the evening’s Guest Speaker.

A host of Griffith law alumni also attended, keen to share stories from their time at the law school which now teaches across both the university’s Nathan and Gold Coast campuses.

Griffith Law moot maestros win national torts competition

Griffith law students have taken out the QUT Torts Moot competition for the first time, successfully arguing a medical negligence case.

Charlotte Roache and James Vercoe from the Griffith Law School saw off the challenge from the University of Sydney in the grand final at the Banco Law Court, Brisbane to claim the prestigious title.

This year’s problem related to medical negligence, and the question of whether a doctor had failed his pregnant patient in relation to the planning and management of the birth.

“It was great to learn about an area that has practical significance to our everyday lives,’’ Charlotte said.

“Knowing what the law requires of our doctors when they advise patients and mooting that question in front of judges who actually decide these matters, gives you an invaluable insight into how the law and the medical profession intersect.”

Moot coach Dr Kylie Burns said Charlotte and James were an outstanding team.

“They had a deep knowledge of the subject matter, remained calm under pressure and were confident in their submissions,” she said.

Griffith was one of only four teams to advance to the semi-finals. They were joined by the University of Sydney, UQ and UTS. The grand final saw Griffith meet the only other undefeated team in the competition, the University of Sydney.

The final was judged by Justices Mullins and Applegarth of the Queensland Supreme Court, and Judge Kent QC of the District Court.

This is the second time that Charlotte and James have won a national moot. In 2015 they won the Michael Kirby National Contracts Moot in Melbourne (with fellow student Dean Aitchison), as well as picking up numerous other team and individual prizes.

Could the next Olympics violate human rights?

On August 5, 2016, Rio will become the first South American city to host the Summer Olympics. Along with the usual fanfare, there are also human rights concerns over the ongoing outbreak of the mosquito-borne Zika virus and its potential impact on athletes and visitors. So much so that dozens of athletes from all over the world have decided to forego the event.

Few sports fans would associate their favourite competition with international human rights law, but according to one legal academic there are some surprising connections at play.

Monash Law School Professor Sarah Joseph, who will deliver the 2016 Michael Wincop Memorial Lecture in August, said sporting’s biggest event—the Olympics—has been embroiled in human rights controversy.

Could the next Olympics violate human rights?

The public lecture is being hosted by Griffith Law School’s Law Futures Centre.

Professor Joseph argues that holding the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro, when there are serious health concerns about the Zika virus, could potentially violate human rights.

“It is highly unlikely that the [Rio Olympics] will be cancelled, despite the fact that it will inevitably spread Zika worldwide. Will this decision result in major threats to the enjoyment of the right to health?” she said.

Major sporting events like the FIFA World Cup and the Olympics can also lead to other human rights abuses, like the forced eviction of citizens to make way for the stadiums and facilities that need to be built.

Professor Joseph said while responsibility for evicting people falls to the host government, do sporting bodies like the International Olympic Committee and FIFA owe any human rights obligations to the people affected?

“Should events be awarded to countries with terrible human rights records, such as Russia, especially if preparation for the event might lead to abuses, such as deaths during stadium construction in Qatar?” she said.

Professor Joseph said that human rights issues could also arise at the individual level, where the labour rights of athletes are often severely constrained by administrative processes.

“Why is a young AFL draftee not able to play for the club of his choice, but can only play for the club that picks him? Why can they only move to the club of their choice after ten years of playing for the same club?” she said.

What’s most troubling is the way in which some sporting bodies and clubs disregard the health rights of their players. Professor Joseph said the Essendon Football Club doping scandal reveals how the club failed in its duty of care.

“They have been fined for OHS (occupational health and safety) breaches, but the affected players still do not know what they were injected with by their own employer,” she said.

Professor Joseph says that human rights obligations are also at stake in the many football codes that carry the risk of long-term brain damage due to multiple concussions.

Time magazine recently reported that over forty percent of NFL players in the US might have brain injuries. What did the NFL know about the dangers of its product for its employees and when?” she said.

While it may not seem it at first, the sporting arena is rife with human rights issues and obligations that are yet to be determined.

The public lecture that will explore these issues is hosted by the Law Futures Centre and is held annually to honour the scholarship and contributions of the late Professor Michael Whincop.

International Human Rights Law

International Human Rights Law at Griffith Law School is designed to expose students to the laws which deal with the protection of individuals and groups against violations by governments of certain internationally guaranteed rights. Students will gain a greater understanding of some of the theoretical, political and socio-economic issues associated with human rights awareness, advocacy and litigation. This course focuses on the structures and processes through which international human rights norms are established and transformed into rights. Students will gain insight into the relationship of international human rights norms to the Australian national legal system and the specific techniques for the implementation of human rights in domestic and international law.

Griffith Law School walks to raise money amid legal aid funding crisis

Griffith Law School staff and students joined other local lawyers in their support for the Queensland Legal Walk.

Held annually as part of National Law Week (this year held May 16 – 20), lawyers across Queensland walked simultaneously to raise funds for the Queensland Public Law Interest Clearing House.

This year’s funds will be used to support QPILCH’s Mental Health Law Practice, which provides free legal advice and assistance to people with mental illness who cannot afford a private lawyer.

Participants raised more than $43,000, to assist QPILCH provide its legal services to some of the most disadvantaged Australians in the community. This year’s funding more than doubles the money raised from last year.

While support for the annual Queensland Legal Walk has increased across the state, it takes place amid what the Law Council of Australia describes as a ‘funding crisis’ for legal aid.

The Law Council of Australia launched the Legal Aid Matters campaign during National Law Week, to call for a commitment from ‘whoever wins the election’ to greater funding for legal aid services across Australia.

The campaign has broad support from a range of legal industry bodies that are concerned that there is a real risk that without further funding ordinary Australians will be locked out of the justice system.

Law Council of Australia President Stuart Clark spoke to the ABC about what was at stake.

“Every time a person goes to court without legal representation, they’re at a real disadvantage,” he said.

“It could be in the family court, it could be in a criminal court, it could be in a civil court. We know the fact people are going to court unrepresented is an absolute tragedy. It is, quite simply destroying lives.”

Griffith Law School is one of the world’s top 100 law schools. Here, students gain all the legal skills to become an accomplished lawyer and have the opportunity to specialise the area of their choice.

Griffith Law student wins Law Without Walls event

Griffith Law student Courtney Rickersey was in the winning team at the Law Without Walls ConPosium held in Florida, US last month.

Griffith Law School

Aina Cordero, Carolina van der Mensbrugghe and Courtney Rickersey celebrate their win with Professor John Flood, Director of the Law Futures Centre at Griffith University (Photo credit: Griffith University)

With fellow students Carolina van der Mensbrugghe from Fordham Law School, New York and Aina Cordero from the University of St Gallen, Switzwerland, Courtney presented a multimedia app called Vide that will enable defendants to prepare for their sentencing hearings by creating a video biography.

“It’s a multimedia advocacy tool that can be use by defendants in New York City,” Courtney said.

“We aim to revolutionise and redistribute the power in the courtroom so that we can create change to sentences.

“Vide is the Latin word for ‘see’ and we want the defendant to be seen. We want their perspective to be in focus.”

Vide is streamlined and simple, taking the defendant step by step through the process and instead of being a statistic the defendant is humanised. It’s advocacy through storytelling.

Law Without Walls is a global, transdisciplinary think-tank around technology, innovation and law. The ConPosium showcases Law Without Walls skills and innovations for the law market.

Griffith law grads in top graduate program

Law careers are one step closer for three Griffith Law School graduates who have been awarded positions with a prestigious Brisbane law firm’s graduate program.

Sam Nean, Emi Christensen and Naomi Midha took up the two-year program with Norton Rose Fulbright at the end of March.

Their individual journeys from student to lawyer may have taken slightly different paths but all have their sights firmly set on burgeoning international careers.

Griffith Law chool

Sam knew she wanted to be a lawyer from a very young age and once she reached high school where she undertook legal studies she discovered a passion for advocacy.

“It was clear to me that law underpins everything in society and I wanted to be a part of that,’’ she said.

As a Griffith Honours College student, Sam was chosen to attend an International Youth leadership conference in Prague prior to studying a semester on exchange.

“It was an amazing experience and I learnt a great deal about the European system of governance and law.”

After graduating from Griffith University in 2014, she spent a year as a judge’s associate in the Supreme Court, which she said, was an invaluable experience.

“It gave me a practical insight into how the justice system works.  I’m now looking forward to seeing how things happen on the other side as a lawyer with Norton Rose Fulbright.”

Sam hopes to practice in litigation and develop an international focus in her work.

International experience

Emi, also a Griffith Honours College student travelled extensively throughout her degree which took her six years to complete instead of five because of her international commitments.

She studied human rights and leadership in Prague in 2012, spent a semester at the University of Copenhagen on exchange in 2013, and in 2014 was awarded a Prime Minister’s Scholarship (now the New Colombo Plan) to study in Japan.

While in Japan, she completed an honours thesis on indigenous human rights, with case studies on the Japanese Ainu people and Australia’s indigenous people.

“I’m looking forward to starting my career at a global law firm with a commitment to community and social responsibility.”

For Naomi, a career as an economist was her initial dream but at her father’s suggestion, she chose to study law as well as commerce.

“Once I started studying law I realised it really suited my personality as I love communicating and interacting with people and I love the problem-solving that’s part and parcel of law.”

Originally from India, Naomi moved to Australia when she was eight but her family moved back to India when she was a teenager and she completed Years 11 and 12 in India.

“I consider myself Australian so when I went back to India it was a huge cultural shock, but I can honestly say it was the best experience. I loved it and it made me appreciate how lucky we are in Australia.”

Naomi chose to study at the Griffith Law School because of its reputation and she wasn’t disappointed.

“I wanted to work in Australia and I heard a lot of good things about the Griffith law program and its focus on practical as well as theoretical concepts.”

Like Emi and Sam, Naomi also participated in an international internship, hers in India at a real estate firm. Her Australian experience includes working at a small Gold Coast-based boutique firm when she was part of the litigation team on one of the biggest personal insolvency cases in Australia.

“I am interested in many different aspects of commercial law and the graduate program will help me decide.”

In whatever area of law they work, one thing is clear, the future is bright for this young trio of lawyers.
