James, Drew and the rest of the Team at Hamilton Janke Lawyers are pleased to welcome Bec Winder, local fifth year law student of the University of Newcastle to the firm. Bec is an extremely accomplished, aspiring Criminal Lawyer and is due to complete her law degree in early November 2019.

Bec completed her Practical Legal Training Placement with Hamilton Janke Lawyers at the beginning of this year, working with both James and Drew on a variety of matters in the Local and District Courts. Bec has also gained practical legal experience working as a volunteer at the University of Newcastle Legal Centre.

Throughout her time at University, Bec placed first in her cohort in Advanced Criminal Law, Child Law and International Human Rights Law. In August 2019, Bec’s written and oral advocacy were recognised when she won the National Intervarsity Criminal Law Moot in Wollongong, and received the award for ‘Best Speaker’ of the Grand Final in the competition.
