Jimmy Dufour - Canada

Course: Bachelor of Laws
Institute: Southern Cross University
Lismore, New South Wales

Jimmy moved from Winnipeg to Southern Cross University to study a Bachelor of Laws. Great teaching staff and a supportive environment allowed Jimmy to make the most of his experience, and led to an exciting new career.

I moved from the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada to study at Southern Cross University and chose the University because of the quality reputation of its School of Law and Justice.

Studying the Bachelor of Laws at Southern Cross University prepared me for the workplace by providing me with a thorough understanding of the theoretical knowledge needed in the practice of law.

Through a very competitive application process, I was successful in securing a summer clerkship with Slater and Gordon Lawyers, one of Australia’s largest law firms. My clerkship was a rotation program taking me through different practice groups in their rural offices in Gunnedah, Dubbo, and Coffs Harbour. After completing my clerkship, Slater and Gordon offered me a full-time position in their Liverpool office in Sydney.

I now have a very exciting role with responsibility for the management, progression and litigation of clients’ legal matters.

The best thing about my university experience was the feeling of community on campus. Whether it was the openness of staff at the School of Law and Justice, the never-ending excitement of student activities on campus, or the support of other students, university life was interesting and fun every day of the week.
