The Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation and ASPIRE came together once again to connect with high school students as part of a new pilot program.
ASPIRE is the University of New South Wales’ outreach program, which delivers opportunities at schools that traditionally have low numbers of students who pursue higher education.
Typically, students either visit Colin Biggers & Paisley or volunteers visit the school. This time, the session was conducted online aiming to reach more students from different schools at a time, and from less accessible areas.
Sarah Roper and William Bromiley talked to Year 11 and 12 students who are interested in studying law at at Condell Park High School about their experience as law graduates at Colin Biggers & Paisley.
They talked about what a day in the life of a law graduate looks like, the work-life balance at Colin Biggers & Paisley and how the Graduate Program is contributing to their professional development.
They also talked to the students about the importance of focusing on oral and written communication skills, problem-solving, and teamwork to help them become successful law students.
