Internet Law Research Clinic

What is the Internet Law Research Clinic?

The Internet Law Research Clinic is partnered with APNIC (Asia Pacific Network Information Centre), an open, member-based, not-for-profit organisation, whose primary role is to distribute and manage Internet resources. This program, supervised by Bond University academics, enables law students to volunteer their time during their degree, to gain practical insight and experience in the area of legal technology and internet law solutions. Students volunteer with the Clinic during the semester for approximately 2-3 hours per week at a mutually agreed time and work on projects to assist APNIC members to address legal technology, internet regulation and cyber security issues.

The Internet Law Research Clinic is usually offered every semester but is subject to change.

Student Testimonials

  • In September of 2022, I decided to apply to the Bond University Internet Law Research Clinic (ILRC) to get significant exposure to real-life legal experience in the field of research and, more specifically, on the issue of access to the internet in Asia Pacific countries.  

    Under the invaluable guidance of Dr Eugenia Georgiades, Melanie Jackson and Temitope Lawal, the clinic allowed me to enhance my research skills and gain further hands-on experience in legal research, legal analysis, and writing. The clinic also provides me with an opportunity to get proper feedback from our world-class research leaders, helping me improve my legal skills overall.  

    Furthermore, being part of the ILRC is a unique and rewarding opportunity as legal research provides a stepping stone for individuals who want to pursue a career in academics or any job in the legal field as it helps develop critical thinking, problem-solving skills and writing abilities.  

    Lastly, the work done with the clinic is rewarding as all the research contributes to the community and makes a positive impact locally and internationally.

  • The Internet Law Research Clinic was a highly valuable experience.  It allowed me to strengthen my research abilities and also allowed me to collaborate with experienced academics who were enthusiastic about their work, ready to share their knowledge and who are willing to provide guidance to students in their research journey.
    In addition to working with the members of the law clinic, I also had the chance to work with a team of other law students. I was pleased by the commitment and skill of my teammates as we worked together on many projects. Working with others taught me how to communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, and negotiate contrasting viewpoints. 

    One of the most satisfying aspects of the Internet Law Research Clinic was the opportunity to impact communities worldwide. Our research has the potential to affect the evolution of internet law and aid in the protection of the rights of citizens around the world. I am grateful to have been given a chance to contribute to such important work and to collaborate with individuals who share my passion for internet law.
