Hello, my name is William. I am a Bachelor of Arts graduate and started a Juris Doctor at the University of Western Australia in 2021. The course is three years, and my expected completion date is late 2023.
I have a keen interest in pursuing a career in the commercial sector, and I am currently working as a paralegal in a commercial law firm. However, as I am only just beginning my legal journey, I have enjoyed engaging in as many areas of the practice as possible. Whether that is getting involved in my university’s law society, being a research assistant for my lecturers, volunteering at a boutique native title firm, or joining Pride in Law’s committee (a national LGBTIQ+ Law Association).
I am honoured to have received a Rio Tinto Thrive Scholarship, and incredibly grateful to my sponsors. The mentorship and assistance I am about to receive by joining The Pinnacle Foundation Family will be transformative.
