A word from Bruno

"After graduating, I received a diverse introduction to the law, working for the Australian Government Solicitor. As part of this role I managed the property portfolio of a telecommunication carrier, represented the ATO in debt recovery proceedings, prosecuted people for the importation of prohibited imports into Australia and managed the conveyancing aspects of the Federal Government’s water buyback scheme.

I was also fortunate to live in Los Angeles, California where I was admitted to the California State Bar. The exams have a very low pass rate, especially for international attorneys".
