Rosie Rand

Rosie is a second year JD student with an undergraduate degree in Nursing (Honours). She grew up on her parents’ farm in the Snowy Mountains where she helped raise goats – milking them daily and often delivering their babies.

For the past 5 years she has worked in the Emergency Department at Royal North Shore Hospital where she looks after some of the most seriously injured and unwell patients in the state. She volunteered as a nurse for 3 months in Togo, West Africa, where she worked in a busy emergency department, as well as local medical centres, orphanages, and volunteer organisations. There she developed first aid teaching program (in French), and was involved with its implementation in schools, orphanages, and amongst other volunteers.

Since starting her law degree at UNSW, Rosie has been included on the Deans List and has published an article in the International Affairs Review, Politik, titled, ‘Cultural Destruction: Hardly a Second-Rate Crime’ which examines the ICC’s recent conviction of Ahmad al-Mahdi for the war crime of cultural destruction in Mali. She has also competed in UNSW Beginner and Intermediate Mooting competitions.

Rosie has a passion for learning French and German, plays violin and piano, is a bit of a classical music buff (but enjoys listening to a wide variety of music – from baroque to country), but most of all loves curling up in front of an open fire with a wine and a good book.
