UNSW Law celebrates 100 Indigenous graduates

The faculty recognises a significant milestone in a journey that is planned to pick up pace and is striving for 300 Indigenous alumni. 

UNSW Law celebrated the many achievements of its more than 100 Indigenous graduates at an event for the respective alumni and the ‘community’ of their families last Friday (29 March).

Among the speakers were the Dean of Law, Professor George Williams, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Indigenous Professor Megan Davis, as well as alumni James Morton (2003) and Teela Reid (2016).

Professor Williams said the event was to celebrate a story of achievement that needed to be told – UNSW is the first university to graduate 100 Indigenous law students.

“The graduation of 100 Indigenous students from UNSW Law is a significant milestone. These students have gone on to extraordinary careers, ranging from high judicial office through to political and community service,” he said.

“Their success reflects the efforts of the students themselves, their families, their teachers and the many others who have provided support to ensure that they have access to a world-class legal education.”
