Supporting the next generation of leaders
Alumni story: Dr James Goudkamp
For many, achieving success in the world of academia can take years; even a lifetime. Not so for UOW alumnus Dr James Goudkamp, who – little more than a decade after graduating from his bachelor’s degree – has risen to the rank of Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law at the prestigious University of Oxford.
Goudkamp continues to have a good connection with UOW. He regularly supports law students by visiting the campus each year to help them with their career plans.
