I chose Swinburne after learning about its cutting edge law school; it’s the only one in the state with a real focus on preparing students to thrive in an increasingly digitised economy transformed by automation and artificial intelligence. There’s an emphasis on studying growth areas of law such as commercial law, intellectual property and legal technology, and an assurance that students will graduate with both currency in the marketplace and confidence in their abilities having obtained extensive professional experience throughout their course.
