The Concordia College Law and Justice Society’s Themis Dinner was held on Wednesday 5 April with over 75 students, Old Concordians and guests from the legal profession in attendance.
This year’s Themis Ambassadors Georgia Chiswell and Georgina Burfield (2019) decided to gain the expertise of a well-published teacher from one of our universities. This year we chose for our keynote speaker address to be delivered by Professor and Dean of Law at Flinders University, Tania Leiman.
The theme of Tania’s speech was: Facing the Future, What’s law got to do with it?
Her keynote was inspiring, and question time proved to be vital for our Year 11 and 12 students to cement their thoughts about whether studying Law would be their pathway at university. Tania showed that there are immense and vital opportunities for graduates of Law to practice with a global perspective.
Thanks to Tania Leiman, Themis Ambassadors Georgia Chiswell and Georgina Burfield (2019), waiters assisting with the catering for the evening, and to Flinders University, Rusty Mutt Wines and the Old Concordians' Association for sponsoring the dinner.
We will also have a casual networking evening in the city later in the year where Old Concordians and lawyers associated with the College will be able to catch up over an informal meal.
