Fear and Failure

With Merissa Martinez, Paloma Chambers

Law Seminar Series - International Law & Dispute Resolution

Tuesday 16 May 2023, 12:30pm – 1:30pm

Law traditionally celebrates bravado and success, but what happens in the inevitable times of failure both personally and in the courtroom? In this week’s Seminar we are joined by Barrister and JCU Alumni, Merissa Martinez who talks about the importance of stepping out of comfort zones into growth, what we can learn from our own failures and the "failure" of cases, doctrines and movements, as society and law progresses and changes.
