Vice President: Indigenous Affairs
Heyo! My name is Aleisha, I’m in my 4th year of law and I am a proud Wiradjuri women.
I am super excited to be working with the UNLSA for a second year and be able to be a voice for Indigenous law students at UON.
My role is super personal to me as I am keenly aware of the equity disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students and I hope to work with my portfolio this year to take steps to close that gap a little more.
My name is Aleisha Bailey, I am a 4th year law student and a proud Wiradjuri woman. Coming from a large family, I know the value of hard work and the importance of a helping hand. I pride myself on being a person who goes out of my way to make sure everyone feels heard and welcomed and can trust me with any thoughts or vulnerabilities they may
My career and life goals are to fight with my community and to help Indigenous people take up the space and time that is needed to make real and meaningful change and to increase access to justice for Indigenous people. I hope to use my position to create a more open space for Indigenous students to speak their minds to UNLSA so that their UON law school experience is culturally safe, memorable and joyful.
This year we’ll be holding multiple events that aim to help Indigenous law students build their future careers and give them the tips and tricks to succeed within this industry, while also providing them with networking opportunities. We aim to also hold educational events that will provide the public with resources, and give them the opportunity to learn more about issues that affect Indigenous people within our society and what can be done to combat these issues.
If you see me around, don’t hesitate to say hi! You can also email me with any questions :))
