Anna Holtby

Anna is a second year Juris Doctor student. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics from the University of New South Wales (‘UNSW’). She was on the Dean’s List for academic excellence in Arts for each year of her linguistics studies. She developed an interest in law during her undergraduate studies due to her observations of the many legal issues faced by clients with mental illness.

In 2017, Anna completed an internship with the Australian Capital Territory Corrective Services, during which she assisted with a large-scale policy review. Also in 2017, she was an editor of UNSW Law Society’s leading social justice publication, the Court of Conscience. In 2018, Anna completed a short course of LawTech study at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, and was named on the Faculty of Law’s Dean’s List. Currently, she volunteers as a tenancy advisor at the Inner Sydney Tenants’ Advice and Advocacy Service based at Redfern Legal Centre, and works as research assistant to a barrister who practises primarily insolvency law. Anna enjoys cycling, boxing, playing soccer, and obsessing about how best to finish sentences that list items in a series.
