Hear from our Bondies

  • I enrolled in a Bachelor of Biomedical Science and a Bachelor of Laws as I knew it would open up different career paths for me and that Bond has an outstanding reputation for producing commercially focussed legal practitioners.

    I secured my first job as an Associate to Queensland Supreme Court judge, the Hon. Justice Al Philippides – before I even graduated! While I continued in the legal field my biomedical science education enables me to specialise in pharmaceutical clients and cases.
