“I enrolled in a Bachelor of Biomedical Science and a Bachelor of Laws because I thought that combination would open up several different career paths. Even though I wasn’t sure if I’d end up practicing law, I knew Bond took a very practical approach to legal education and had an outstanding reputation for producing commercially focussed legal practitioners with the skills to be able to contribute from day one.

As a born-and-bred Gold Coast girl, the campus location was also a great incentive for me!

I found that the small classes at Bond mean you really do get to know your tutors and lecturers quite well. I received lots of help in terms of being told about job opportunities, as well as support when I was undertaking clerkships and work experience during semester time. Knowing my lecturers meant that I could ask for the flexibility to make other arrangements when those opportunities came up in the middle of term.

I ended up securing my first job – as an Associate to Queensland Supreme Court judge, the Hon. Justice Al Philippides – before I even graduated. I have continued on in the legal field but my studies in biomedical science have allowed me to specialise in pharmaceutical clients and cases relating to the protection and maintenance of their intellectual property rights, including patent, trademark, copyright and trade secrets.”
