The success of the Conference would not have been possible without the support of our partners (the Bond University Faculty of Law, Voiceless, the Law Wellness Network, and the Australasian Law Academic Association (ALAA)), the chairs, the attendees, our colleagues, and the presenters, and for that we are extremely grateful. We are also grateful for the support of our IT partner Encore Event Technologies who provided such an innovative and engaging online conference environment.
The second Professional Legal Education Conference will take place at Bond University in 2022. We look forward to seeing you then.
