“I’m definitely very interested in advocacy and I guess my ultimate goal would be to become a barrister,” Ms Williams said.

The graduate was part of the team which won the International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot title in the Netherlands this year, UQ’s second consecutive world-title win.

Mooting is a simulated court proceeding, where law students are able to argue a legal problem before a judge or panel.

Ms Williams said UQ’s mooting program was world class.
