From refugee camp to courthouse
In my opinion, VU has the best law faculty in Australia, which is why I chose to study there.

Bachelor of Legal Services
Dhur Kiir Keer moved to Australia from a Kenyan refugee camp and worked for seven years before commencing at VU. After completing studies in English, he turned his attention to law.
"I was born in South Sudan and spent four years in a refugee camp called Kakuma Kenya before coming to Australia in 2004. My main area of interest is law, so I enrolled in and completed the Advanced Diploma of Legal Practice at VU, which allowed me to gain entry into a Bachelor of Legal Services. I am currently in my first year of this course and hope to transfer to Bachelor of Law.
In my opinion, VU has the best law faculty in Australia, which is why I chose to study here. Aside from that, VU offers a variety of student support services for writing, research of articles and legislation, and referencing. I regularly use these services for help with my referencing.
At the moment I am focused on completing my degree and building my career. I deliberately chose the field of justice because I believe it will be an excellent career path – one that will allow me to make a positive contribution to society."
