Attorney-General Robert McClelland awarded April Long the inaugural Indigenous Law Student of the Year for 2011 at the Sixth National Indigenous Legal Conference in Sydney on 12 August.
April is a final year Combined Arts/Law student at UNSW Law School and is also the student editor of the Indigenous Law Centre's Indigenous Law Bulletin.
"These annual awards highlight the significant contribution made by Indigenous peoples to Australia's legal system and demonstrate the recipients' commitment and contribution to the legal profession and Indigenous communities," said Mr McClelland.
Congratulations to UNSW Law's team on their performance in the 2011 Shine Lawyers Torts Moot!
On 8 12 August 2011, UNSW competed in the National Shine Lawyers Torts Moot. Hosted each year by the Queensland University of Technology, this year's competition required mooters to grapple with a complex problem in tort addressing the defence of illegality and contributory negligence.
UNSW was represented by Justin Locke, Jasmine Opdam, Andrew Smorchevsky and Jonathan Stephens. James King, UNSW alumnus and barrister, coached, with Emily Burke and Guy Baldwin assisting.
