Scholarship 2018

Congratulations!

We congratulate QLD University of Technology Law student Phoebe Egoroff, winner of the 2018 Global Mobility Immigration Lawyers Scholarship, for her superb documentary.

Phoebe Egoroff, Tracy Worrall (QPASTT), Dr Pamela Douglas (QPASTT)


Comments from the national judging panel included:


"Phoebe’s entry stood out as really well researched - she went out of her way to examine the legal and personal implications of the concept that lawyers helping asylum seekers are in-Australian. She was engaging, her video was dynamic and logically presented and she really got to the heart of the question. I was pleased that she reached out to Peter Dutton for comment as well as conducting interviews with those who supported her argument. It was a creative yet thorough analysis of the questions"


and

​​

"very effective in getting across the message of what is and is not ‘Australian’"


and


"in interviewing Julian Burnside, and her friend Razik who is a refugee and law student, and her attempts to get an interview with Peter Dutton himself, all show impressive initiative…the final two minutes of the piece make some pertinent and powerful points"

Topic 2018

The topic for 2018 was:


Immigration lawyers acting for asylum seekers are “unAustralian”. Respond.


Prizes

Phoebe has nominated the QLD Program of Assistance to Survivors of Torture & Trauma (QPASTT) for the donation component of her prize - an excellent and worthy choice!
