News about old Paulines

First Female Pauline now Juris Doctor

Tiffany Kwong, in College 2018-21, was the first female student to be admitted to St Paul’s College and was the very first applicant accepted into Graduate House back in 2018. Along with large numbers of other USyd students she was a “COVID-graduand” and denied the formal University graduate ceremony during that period.  In the spirit of tradition the University organised a day of special ceremonies in October for anyone wanting a catch-up.

Tiffany (JD) and a fellow Graduate House alumnus Yash Bhoola (MBus), in College 2019-20 and Tutor 2021-23, had their conferring of degree ceremony on 18 October and in the staff procession were the Dean of the Sydney Law School Prof Simon Bronitt, Academic Resident in College 2019-20, and Director of Community Engagement at Paul’s Richard Morgan.
