(Student Profile)

Liana Crowe

"I think the strength of Macquarie's law program is that it is not just a 'black letter' law degree. The program not only teaches what the law is and how it should be applied, but also to critically analyse the law and to ask questions about why it's like it is, how it has evolved, where it is going, and how it can be improved."

Liana Crowe, Lawyer, Allens Arthur Robinson
