We're super excited to announce our very own Sophie Tversky is a finalist for Law Student of The Year at the Law Institute of Victoria's Victorian Legal Awards!
"I am delighted and honoured to be a finalist," says Sophie. "Everything I do comes from a genuine love of learning, curiosity and desire to contribute, and I am humbled by this recognition."
While she's a high-flying student, Sophie is looking forward to life after study.
"I have a passion for the law and would like to practise. Some of my other aspirations include completing a MBA, being a service-oriented leader, ensuring creativity is a constant in my life and contributing to the bigger picture in some way."
Whichever career path she takes, Sophie believes "a growth-mindset – a desire to learn new skills and adaptability - will be an advantage."
Current changes in the legal and professional services markets mean graduates need to be equipped with a range of skills. While recent commentary has focused on coding and digital literacy, Sophie says there's a deeper lesson for Law graduates.
"Understanding the language of code and data analytics will be increasingly important, but the central element of that conversation is bringing inter-disciplinary skills and thinking paradigms to the legal industry, as well as digital literacy."
In particular, she believes "interpersonal skills and empathy are crucial" for Law graduates, citing the legal industry's increasing use of UX-design as an example.
It's not all just about technical or work-related knowledge, though. Sophie believes graduates need to also spend time on themselves.
"I think a strong sense and understanding of self is important when entering the workforce. This is especially relevant as there has been increasing awareness about the importance of wellbeing in the law. Understanding how you handle stressful situations and your coping mechanisms will assist when transitioning into new or challenging environments."
The LIV's Victorian Legal Awards will be held this Friday 18 May. We wish Sophie all the best for her nomination!

How a pocket square business is helping one law student thrive.
Monash law student Flynne Tytherleigh was recently featured in Lawyers Weekly with her small business PocketMan. Building a business that designs and manufacturers pocket squares for men has become a welcome vocational outlet for Flynne helping break up the grind of lectures and readings for her degree.
Flynne says that finding a balance – first within yourself and with the people around you – so that you can achieve both your educational and vocational goals is fundamentally important to ensuring success across the board for law students who harbour an entrepreneurial streak.
