Farewell to Bridget Burton

Farewell to Bridget Burton

Article by Madeleine Jensen & Melanie Karibasic

This week we say farewell to Acting Director of the UQ Pro Bono Centre, Bridget Burton. For the past 18 months the Centre, University and students have had the pleasure of Bridget’s expertise and hard work. In that time, Bridget has worked tirelessly with students, industry partners and the community, supporting the new Queensland Human Rights Legislation, and building connections in the Asia-Pacific with a focus on Papua New Guinea. Before she leaves, we wanted to drop in and ask her a few questions about her journey in the law, and her thoughts on the future of students and social justice.
