My experience so far has been positive and I look forward to continuing my career in legal practice as an Officer of the Court after graduation and admittance. It has also been a good opportunity to perfect my grasp of the English language.
I found most of the lecturers and tutors helpful and professional. Of special note is Bill Rimmer, who I would regard as one of the best lecturers currently at ACU. However, I found it disappointing at times when a few brought their own political views to the classroom. Students should be able to complete their studies undisturbed by the views of faculty members.
I work in a firm already, which has been a fantastic opportunity that not enough law students pursue. My work has introduced me to the practical side of family law, property and commercial law and probate/wills and estates.
If you want to go to a university that will maximise your learning and ability I would recommend ACU. University can be daunting but ACU is such an accommodating and exciting university to be a part, you will transition from high school or a different university quite easily. ACU is not only a great learning institution but also provides each student with great opportunities and resources to excel.
I would like my career to allow me to continue my work as a legal practitioner. Many law students and graduates overlook private practice, in commercial law particularly, as mundane and boring, and seek out work in government, the Bar or criminal law practice. This is a mistake, as working with and helping everyday Australians in understanding the law at the most important times of their life, such as buying a house, drawing a will or, sadly, divorcing their spouse, is truly rewarding and gratifying work.
