Annual Macquarie University Law and Practice Prize Night

/ / Information, Uncategorized

AICNSW was pleased to again sponsor this year’s Macquarie University Conveyancing Law and Practice Prize Night on 22nd July 2019, and to celebrate the Graduating Class of 2018 which has produced 97 graduates.

In addition to the Graduation and Academic Award certificates, Paul Denny and Dale Turner, two long-standing and life members of AICNSW, attended to present their eponymous awards.

The Paul Denny Award is awarded to the student who achieves the highest grade without the benefit and support of working in the industry. Paul Denny, who in 2018 celebrated 40 years as a licenced conveyancer, established this Award to recognise the difficulties of studying conveyancing while working outside the profession and without the support of professional colleagues.

The 2019 Paul Denny Award winner is Leah Amadio.

The Dale Turner Award is awarded to the Dux of the Graduating Class.  Dale Turner is a past President of AICNSW and a former member of AIC National and has supported the Awards since their inception when the Conveyancing Law and Practice course was first commenced in 1995.

The 2019 Dale Turner Award winner is Natalie Spehar.

Befitting the year in which NSW conveyancing became digital in the mainstream, the Occasional Address was delivered by Lisa Dowie, Chief Customer Officer of PEXA, who provided an interesting address of the e-conveyancing journey and the future of conveyancing in NSW.

AICNSW is proud to support this celebration of achievement and congratulates all graduates in the Class of 2018 and we will look forward to seeing the graduates forging successful and interesting careers in conveyancing.
