Being involved with the Pro Bono Centre's PNG projects has been a highlight of my time at TC Beirne. I have been able to combine my interest in areas such as international and constitutional law with my passion for pro bono work.

I have gained the ability to undertake comparative research and a familiarity with new resources and databases - skills that I have already drawn on in both my formal studies and the workplace.

These projects have also sparked my interest in the Pacific Islands region and how its domestic systems interact with international law. Many of these States face challenges in developing their laws and institutions. However, there is an exciting and creative element to working in systems where there is a chance to build from the ground up and question why other jurisdictions have always taken a certain approach.

I am grateful for having the opportunity to work on such unique projects and to contribute, even in a small way, to growing a strong PNG legal system. I would highly recommend getting involved as the program grows!
