Meet Melbourne JD student, Emily Edsell

"The thing that surprised me most about Melbourne Law School is how close-knit the community really is. Unlike my undergraduate where there were so many people, the cohort is smaller, so you really get to know a lot more people. There are also a lot of social events as well as career and information sessions, so you get to experience a wide range of things and get involved."
