Comprising nine compelling seminars throughout Semester Two, the series notched up an impressive registration count of over 1100, capturing the attention of students, staff, legal enthusiasts and professionals alike.

A distinctive highlight of this semester was our steadfast commitment to inclusivity. Breaking down geographical barriers as each seminar was seamlessly live-streamed, providing accessibility to external law students, legal practitioners and the wider community. The resounding praise from external students underscores the significant value they found in participating in these high-calibre events. This initiative serves as a conduit for knowledge dissemination, fostering connectivity and offering an unmatched opportunity for legal enthusiasts to expand their intellectual horizons.
