Critical legal mind

When he graduated from Notre Dame’s School of Law class of 2011 there was only one firm Daniel wanted to work at.

He joined Slater and Gordon in 2012 and is now a Senior Associate heading up the WA industrial and employment law practice. Daniel services the largest union client base in WA in all industrial law matters and has also developed extensive experience in discrimination law including sexual harassment.

“Being at a firm that embodied my social justice values and fights for the rights of the everyday person was always important to me, I’m proud to be here,” says Daniel who graduated with a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Philosophy.

Combining philosophy with law built my ability to question and analyse, to delve beyond the surface. It developed both my critical thinking skills and myself as a person.

Daniel chose to study at Notre Dame because of the University’s excellent reputation, core units and small class sizes.

“The sense of community with my former classmates is still strong which is really nice. I also built networks as a student that I continue to benefit from.”

Daniel was the President of the Notre Dame Law Students’ Society—NDA’s largest and longest running student society which organises social, sporting, academic, social justice and careers events.
