UQ Law School graduate secures internship in The Netherlands

University of Queensland Law School graduate Brooke Marshall has secured a sought-after internship at the Permanent Bureau of The Hague Conference on Private International Law in The Netherlands.

Ms Marshall, a solicitor with Allens in Brisbane, said she was honoured to have been selected for the 2013 Peter Nygh Hague Conference Internship.

“I have a deep fascination with the complexities of private international law—an interest piqued by my undergraduate studies at the TC Beirne School of Law,” she said.

“The Nygh internship presents a unique opportunity to work at the world’s leading organization for the harmonization of the rules of private international law.”

The Hague Conference on Private International Law is a global, inter-governmental body seeking internationally agreed approaches to situations common to many countries with different legal systems, for example, child protection, marriage and commercial law.

Its first meeting was held in 1893 on the initiative of Tobias Asser, the 1911 Nobel Peace Prize winner.

“The Hague Conference promotes access to justice in cross-jurisdictional situations and gives life to Tobias Asser’s vision of a global order of richly diverse bodies of civil and commercial laws through the progressive unification of the rules of private international law,” Ms Marshall said.

During the six-month internship, Ms Marshall will work within the Permanent Bureau researching and translating texts and drafting advice and recommendations from Expert Working Groups into international instruments.

The role will draw on French language skills she gained at the UQ School of Languages and Comparative Cultural Studies and through UQ Abroad university exchanges in Paris and Lyon.

The Peter Nygh Hague Conference Internship is awarded in memory of The Hon Dr Peter Nygh AM, a former judge of the Family Court of Australia and a leading international lawyer.

Following her graduation from UQ with Honours in 2012, Ms Marshall worked as an associate to The Honourable Justice Keane while he was Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Australia before joining Allens.

UQ Law School students celebrate academic excellence

University of Queensland Law School students have been awarded for their exceptional academic performance, in areas from taxation law to criminal procedure.

Special guest, the Hon. Justice Patrick Keane of the High Court of Australia, presented the academic prizes at the UQ Law Awards Ceremony at Customs House on May 15.

In his opening address, UQ Law alumnus Justice Keane congratulated the award recipients and reminded them of the value and advantages their university education will provide.

“The advantage which we enjoy is very special,” Justice Keane said. “We all owe a great deal to those who have made it possible for us to enjoy this advantage; it is something that previous generations did not enjoy or even dream about.

UQ’s Dean of Law, Professor Nick Gaskell described the event as an opportunity to celebrate the success of the law school’s highest performing students.

“This is a special night to acknowledge the hard work and efforts of the prize winners and for them to share their success with their families and friends as well as leading members of the legal profession,” Professor Gaskell said.

Professor Gaskell thanked the law firms and individuals who donated many of the awards and prizes presented on the night.

More than 100 guests attended the event, including law prize sponsors, legal professionals, and family and friends of the award-winning students.

Among them was The Hon. Ian Walker, Queensland’s Minister for Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts who presented the David Leeder Davies Prize in Trade Practices Law to Ms Evelyn Peter.

The prize was established by family and friends in memory of Mr Walker’s brother-in-law, UQ Law alumnus David Leeder Davies, who graduated from the school in 1981.

UQ Law School’s December 2012 Valedictorian Mr Byron Hewson said it was a testimony to the generosity of the law school alumni community to have so many awards to present on the night.

During the evening Justice Keane also presented the prestigious UQ Law Mentor of the Year Award to Brisbane lawyer Krista Mahoney of Thynne & Macartney.
