Lachlan

I’m from a small town called Innisfail, just south of Cairns in tropical far north Queensland.

I’m currently in my last year of a Bachelor of Laws degree. I’m particularly drawn to the idea of helping others; standing up for those who can’t stand up for themselves.

So I’m studying Law at USQ. We get a lot of practical experience whilst completing our studies so a lot of the assessment pieces are actually tailored around real-world situations.

So we have the Moot Court on-campus where students are encouraged to go along and practice their mooting and advocacy skills and the lecturers do give us quite a lot of feedback in how to develop ourselves professionally and in terms of our academic pursuits.

The University is all about striking a work/studying/socialising balance and that’s really important. And it really is so easy to make friends on-campus. There’s all sorts of events to assist people with making friends.

I’ve had such a great experience at USQ and I’ve developed such fantastic skills, both in the classroom and outside of the classroom and I feel I’d be able to put those towards my career.

My advice would be just to take the plunge. Find something you’re interested in and jump in. I did and I definitely wouldn’t trade that in for anything.
