Lucy is an innovative leadership program for female students at the University of Wollongong with long term career aspirations of using their Law Degree either as a practitioner or in other fields such as policy, in-house counsel, advisory roles etc.
The key objective of the program is to inspire, motivate and educate women about the opportunities available for career direction and leadership. This is achieved by establishing relationships between individual students and mentors who have achieved success in their professional career. Mentors are drawn from the corporate, public and not-for-profit sectors.
'I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of the LUCY program. I feel work experience opportunities like this are fantastic and the only way to work out what area of the law and/or what career you might like to pursue in the future. They also help provide context for the degree.' (2014 Lucy participant, Alannah Curry, Bachelor of Laws/ Bachelor of Communication and Media Studies)
