Five more questions before you graduate: Tara Peramatukorn

Tara Peramatukorn

Why did you decide to study law?

After completing an internship at UNICEF in high school, I became very interested in the practice of international law. I chose to study law at ANU because of the leading reputation of its international law faculty.

What was the best thing about your time at ANU College of Law?

I have enjoyed participating in a number of moots, most recently the Jessup Moot in 2016. I found it to be a very exciting way to add a practical element to my legal education.

What would you say to someone who is thinking about studying law?

Give it a go – you will either find it to be a very satisfying degree which constantly challenges the way you think, or you will develop a set of skills which are very transferrable in a number of career contexts.

How did winning a prize help you?

Winning a prize has helped reinforce that pursuing a career in law is the right decision for me.

What’s next?

I’m deciding on whether to settle in Sydney or go abroad – but for now I’ll be taking a break and travelling!
