Griffith Law School’s Professor Mary Keyes and Associate Professor Therese Wilson have been named on the Women Lawyers Association of Queensland (WLAQ) 2018 Inspo List for their inspiring work in teaching, coaching and mentoring future lawyers.
To celebrate its 40th year and coincide with International Women’s Day, the WLAQ announced its list of women who have inspired them over the course of their careers.
“We have worked together at Griffith Law School for a long time, teaching, coaching Vis international commercial arbitration moot teams, and serving the law school in management positions,’’ Associate Professor Wilson said.
“Throughout we have both been passionate about quality legal education and supporting our students to become the best lawyers they can be.
“We are both honoured and humbled to have been included in the Women Lawyers’ Association of Queensland’s 2018 list of women lawyers who have inspired.”
Griffith alumni on the list include: barristers Susan Downes, Dearne Firth, and Borcsa Vass; solicitor, Cassandra Heilbronn; Brisbane City Councillor Kara Cook; and Tanya Deissel on the community list. Student Jess Jonassen also made the list.
