    Bianca Rapisarda

    Bachelor of Business - Bachelor of Laws

    I chose JCU because of the convenience of having a well-respected university so close to home. I had a keen interest in law and accounting and both degrees complement each other well. I’m confident that I will be exposed to a greater range of employment opportunities, which is definitely worth the extra year of study.

    Mitchell Locke

    Bachelor of Business - Bachelor of Laws

    The WIL program at JCU gave me the opportunity to work with the legal team in multinational consulting firm Accenture. The skills learnt in the classroom were put to use in a practical environment such as contractual negotiation. This continues to assist me in my role where contractual disputes are often litigated.
