Uni pathways open career doors for future commercial lawyer
Already an electrician by trade and small business owner, Klay Thompson is continuing to expand his skill set through studying at Notre Dame with a view to explore career opportunities in commercial law.
Currently studying a Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Commerce at Notre Dame’s Fremantle Campus, Klay gained entry to his double degree through Notre Dame’s Tertiary Pathway Program. He says the program gave him the skills needed to transition into tertiary studies.
“Having run my small business, Mc2 Plumbing, for a few years I was interested in learning more about commerce. The smaller classes was a pretty big appeal to me, it’s more of a one on one basis with lecturers,” Klay says.
Klay says the added benefit of studying the Core Curriculum has prepared him well for a future career as a lawyer.
The Core Curriculum definitely allowed me to grow as a person. The Ethics and Philosophy units really get you to ask questions that you normally wouldn’t.
Klay was also attracted to the University for its picturesque learning environment. “I think the location is quite amazing. It’s a very tight little culture, cafes everywhere, it’s not that institutional feel.”
