Graduate success

“Unlike most other Australian law graduates, ours don’t actually need to do a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice in order to qualify as a lawyer. At Flinders our law degree already provides those skills,” says Law School’s Dean, Professor Kim Economides (pictured). Read about some of our trailblazers like Elliott Johnson QC and Bibi Sangha.
