Bond University Graduation Ceremony in Paris

After eight months studying abroad to complete the French Bar School and Bond University Master of Laws (International Legal Practice), 10 French law students have returned to Paris to graduate in a special ceremony on Friday March 18.

The students are the inaugural cohort to participate in a Bond University graduation ceremony in their home country. The agreement between Bond University and the French Bar School, established in 2006, allows students who are undertaking their Practical Legal Training in France to complete their Master's programs in Australia.

The experience provides students with an insight into international legal systems and is particularly beneficial for students looking to expand their legal skills. 

Graduand, 26-year-old Claire Lehucher says she enjoyed the chance to experience Australia while up-skilling.

“The Master of Laws (International Legal Practice) program was a great opportunity to study abroad and learn additional skills,” said Claire.

“The best thing about the program is the interaction with the teachers and other students; I now have an international network. I also loved the mediation class, which is not really developed in France so it was a new discovery for me,” she said. 

Bond University Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Stable said this partnership showed the true international focus of Bond.

“It is fantastic to see these students graduating after their time in Australia. Bond University prides itself on being an international university offering our students global connections. This graduation ceremony helps us celebrate all that they have achieved,” said Professor Stable.

The First Secretary of the Australian Embassy, Mrs Gita Kamath, will give the key note address, followed by speeches delivered by the Bond University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Robert Stable, Mr Gerard Nicolay, Director of the French Bar School and the Valedictorian.

The graduation ceremony will take place at the French Bar School in Paris.  Joining Bond University Vice-Chancellor at the ceremony will be Bond University Faculty of Law Dean Professor Geraldine Mackenzie, along with distinguished guests. A cocktail reception will be held at the French Bar School following the ceremony.
