Law Careers Panel

Organised and hosted by Jason Zhu He (BSc/LLB 4) a very successful careers panel was held on 16 May in the Chalmers Common Room for undergraduate and post graduate students studying law and those who are interested in a legal career.

Representing a range of legal and allied career paths, the panel spoke about topics from finding their feet after graduating to marks at uni. They shone light on all the paths students can take towards, and beyond, a legal career.

The panellists were:

  • Janine Ryan, financial services executive, general counsel and chief compliance officer at the ASX;

and old Paulines:

  • Matt Andrews (1987-90), partner at Kennedys with special interest in international insurance and insolvency sectors of the law.
  • Amer Nasr (2019-20), associate at Baker McKenzie who has also had experience as a policy advisor to the NSW Attorney-General;
  • Hugh Richards (1985-89), principal at Latimer Partners who spoke about life after a law degree and applying his knowledge in the international financial sector; and,
  • Kevin Tang (2000-02), a successful barrister in commercial, equity and administrative law.

A big thanks to this panel for leading an inspiring and informative discussion with our budding law practitioners. One of the students visiting from another college remarked on the great opportunities St Paul’s provides for broader student community with these types of events which do allow friends of St Paul’s students to attend.
