May guest

Andrea Perry Petersen is a lawyer, clinical legal educator, legal tech adviser and social justice advocate. Last year she was awarded a Churchill Fellow, and in 2017, was a Legal Innovation Index Winner.

But Andrea, a high achiever all her life, has also written about confronting and managing anxiety to win those awards.  Her new philosophy is nothing ventured, nothing gained—go after that opportunity if it aligns with your interests, values and goals. 

Andrea is now living this mantra, having just launched Re-Imagining Justice—a global podcast for changemakers in law, social justice and innovation.

Join Andrea on Wednesday 1 May at 10.30am at BrewPoint at the Synthetic Playing Fields for conversation and coffee.

About Coffee Conversations Series

Coffee Conversations is a series of great monthly guests working in the law and other related fields sharing their stories with you. They are an informal and relaxed opportunity to converse with professionals who have had interesting lives and careers.

Regardless of what you do beyond university, good conversational skills are critical to learning, generating opportunities, and social fluency. Conversations are integral to effective communication, to relationships and to the exchange of thoughts and ideas. Through conversations, we collaborate, resolve conflict, and create new possibilities.

So come along for a free cup of coffee to meet wonderful people and practice your conversational skills with them and each other. Note - Coffee Conversations are not presentations.  Students are expected to show interest and be curious, actively listen, and respect others.  

Stay tuned for news of the conversation guests, and monthly dates.
