Two QUT Law students have had the opportunity to experience life in different areas of the Queensland Government as part of Law Week 2017.
William Yates, Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Laws student, and Olivia Brumm, Bachelor of Justice/Bachelor of Laws student, participated in the ‘Justice Journeys’ program run by the Department of Justice and Attorney-General, gaining work experience at the Brisbane Magistrates Court and Queensland Corrective Services (QCS) respectively.
“Overall, this experience has motivated me to pursue a career within the criminal justice system. I would like to thank the entire Brisbane Chief Magistrate’s office who provided me with this wonderful opportunity. I highly recommend this experience for any student offered the chance to undertake a Justice Journey,” he said.
Olivia joined two other students at the High Risk Offender Management Unit at QCS to gain an insight into offender management.
“Job shadowing senior advisors was interesting and informative. It opened my eyes to the important role this team plays in the management and review of prisoner sentences, the court process and administration of the law,” said Olivia.
