Western Sydney University Law undergraduate named Student of the Year
Western Sydney University student Taylor Macdonald has been named the Lawyers Weekly Student of the Year at a special gala event at Melbourne.
More than 340 people gathered for the Women in Law Awards ceremony, which recognised the achievements of Australian women in the legal industry at all levels.
Ms Macdonald was chosen from a strong field of candidates by a panel of high-profile judges, including the President of the Law Council of Australia Duncan McConnell and the President of the Australian Law Reform Commission Rosalind Croucher.
Ms Macdonald is enrolled in a Bachelor of Business and Commerce (Advanced Business Leadership)/ Bachelor of Laws, and says she's wanted to be a lawyer since Year 5.
"I really like studying law, especially thinking logically and analysing complex situations," says Ms Macdonald.
"Studying at Western Sydney University has given me great opportunities, such as attending the G20 youth forum in Russia and the International Humanitarian Symposium in Bali."
The Dean of the Western Sydney University Law School Michael Adams has congratulated Ms Macdonald.
"Taylor Macdonald is an incredible student, and is fully deserving of this award," says Professor Adams.
"This recognition highlights how the reputation of Western Sydney University's Law School continues to grow as more of our students and graduates make their mark in the legal world."
