Griffith University Law School has been very supportive of introducing future practitioners to the real world experience at Robina Community Legal Centre. Our president recently had a productive meeting with dean and head of school Professor Penelope Mathew, together with other senior GU staff.
Following our meeting two senior GU representatives were able to visit last evening and see RCLC in operation: deputy head of school Dr Theresa Wilson and senior lecturer Ms Lynne Weathered.
Thanks to recent graduate Ian Martin for facilitating discussions. We are confident a mutually suitable partnership arrangement will be put in place shortly.
