PMP Law Chris Brydon Testimonial

Christopher Brydon

Barrister, Victorian Bar

Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of International Studies

Deakin helped me develop skills not only to practice law and do my job effectively, but also to get along well with colleagues and understand a breadth of human experience and backgrounds. I think the Deakin Law Clinics were particularly helpful at developing real-world skills to help me in my early years.

PMP Law Bonnie Vogel Testimonial

Bonnie Vogel

Lawyer in private practice

Bachelor of Laws

I had fantastic lecturers who were knowledgeable and brought real-life, in-practice experience to the learning environment. I valued my university studies and I attribute a lot of my passion for my career to the lecturers responsible for my education.

PMP Stella Richards JD Testimonial

Stella Richards

Lawyer, Russell Kennedy Lawyers

Juris Doctor

I was able to work full time whilst changing careers through studying the Juris Doctor. It has supported me to gain a highly competitive role at a mid-tier law firm in Melbourne CBD and finish my degree with a strong network of lawyers, barristers and uni friends. Each and every lecturer that taught the JD degree was passionate, so experienced in their area of law and a natural leader.
