Julian Vertoudakis

Julian is in his final year of a BEc/LLB, relishing the challenge of a full load of law subjects after completing his major in the imaginatively titled ‘Economics’. His inspiration for joining the Law Journal was a belief in the paramount importance of integrity for academic publications and a desire to contribute to the operation of one of Australia's leading legal publications.

At university, Julian is usually busy debating or mooting, having been a finalist at the Australasian Intervarsity Debating Championships and the Allens Linklaters Senior Mooting Competition, and a participant at the World University Debating Championships and the Justice Gummow Cup. He can also be seen volunteering for various causes such as the Law Faculty’s Student Legal Education Group program and Arc’s Shack Tutoring program.

When not at uni, he can be found working as a paralegal in a top-tier law firm or coaching and adjudicating debating for various organisations. Julian is an avid skier and regularly dreams of hitting the slopes in exotic locations around the globe (though as a student he is sadly confined to areas closer to home).
