Welcome to week 11!
Thanks to all of you who joined us at the Ashurst Dinner Debate on Friday night, It was a great evening full of frivolity and laughter. Congrats to Emma Greeney, Baz Iyer and Andrea Bradley for representing the students so successfully against the evergreen professionals’ team. I just hope that you can all still get jobs. A big shout out also goes to the Rubin Trehan and the entire Education Sub-Committee for putting on the event, these things don’t just happen overnight.
It’s grand finals week! Come on down to the Clayton Utz Trial Advocacy and Corrs Chambers Westgarth Client Interview grand finals to witness the law school’s greatest battle it out.
