The practice of law
Visiting Indonesia and helping shape the university’s strategy for engaging in the region was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Jack. It gave the Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Business student valuable practical experience and challenged him to think outside the box.
I chose Swinburne because I wanted to be part of a tight-knit community. It was important to me to know that I would have the ability to form close relationships with other students and get direct support from academics – something that I felt would be difficult in a bigger university.
