The fact that these students have acknowledged the dedication and commitment of staff in a formal setting is edifying for the law team here at WIT. Watching our students - on both the Higher Certificate in Legal Studies and the Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) - develop their legal knowledge, intellectual curiosity and transferable skills over the duration of their studies and make their mark in a diverse range of careers validates not only our teaching methodology but also our open-door policy."
