Inspiring Addresses to New Students

The new UNSW LLB and JD classes heard inspiring addresses from alumni, respectively, Sean Lau (recently awarded the Rhodes Scholarship) and Michael Rose (Chief Executive Partner of Allens).

Sean gave excellent advice on decision-making, in which he looked critically at clichéd advice students always get to ‘keep your options open’ and ‘do what you love’.

Michael Rose gave an inspiring speech on ‘why law matters’. He started from his experience of a child’s preventable death in PNG, which he saw as a product of a society lacking the rule of law. He went on to talk about how law will matter in the world you will be working in, and your responsibilities as lawyers.

Sean’s and Michael’s speeches can be found here.
