11 May 2017

Almost 200 students from Queensland’s oldest law school have been recognised for their diverse achievements at an award ceremony at Brisbane’s Customs House.

Head of School and Dean of Law Professor Sarah Derrington said The University of Queensland’s TC Beirne School of Law encouraged students to strive for greatness across all areas of student life.

“Our annual Law Awards honour students who embody excellence in many different forms,” Professor Derrington said.

“We celebrate the diversity of the cohort by recognising students who have achieved outstanding academic results, created positive change through pro bono legal work, and earned scholarships aligned with their passions and accomplishments.”
