Faculty of Business and Law awards recognise best and brightest

The Faculty of Business and Law held its annual Student Awards at the City Flinders campus on the evening of Wednesday 13 June 2012. Approximately 180 people attended, including award sponsors, student award winners, and their family and friends.

This year the Faculty handed out a record record number of awards. The majority were for academic excellence across courses, specialisations and unit. The ceremony also saw the debut of a new award category - The Executive Dean's Awards for Excellence in Leadership, in Engagement and in Research.
