Director of Competitions: Intervarsity
Hello everyone! My name is Kate, and I am currently in my third year of studying Law at the University of Newcastle. My role within the UNLSA is Co-Director of Competitions (Skills). This role involves facilitating and organising the Negotiation, Paper Presentation, and Client Interviewing competitions. I am very excited for the commencement of the competitions we have planned this year and cannot wait to see students experience the benefit participating in competitions offers, as I have experienced myself over the past couple of years.
I am currently studying the Juris Doctor/Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice program and have previously graduated with a Bachelor of Criminology (Sub-major in Sociology). I work part-time whilst volunteering for Youth Law Australia and interning at the Australian Disputes Centre. Following the completion of my current degree, I hope to pursue a career in criminal law.
