Hi I am Lachie! I am in my first year of the Juris Doctor program at the University of Melbourne (Melbourne Law School), with approximately three years of study left in this course.
I previously graduated with a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne, majoring in Geography, and Politics and International Studies.
I grew up in a small coastal town in northern Tasmania and moved to Melbourne after high school. I am passionate about improving outcomes and opportunities for disadvantaged people, particularly educational opportunities for people from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. I am excited for a career in the legal profession and public policy space where I can advance these causes.
Thank you to IFM Investors and The Pinnacle Foundation for awarding me a scholarship, the support is greatly appreciated as I continue my legal studies.
