A law unto himself

Since completing his studies at VU, Farhan Rehman has started his own law firm and presented to audiences across the globe.

“My greatest achievements include being admitted to legal practice, opening my own firm in Melbourne with a branch in my hometown of Wagga Wagga and expanding my business overseas. I was raised with the ideology and understanding that one should help others and contribute to society, so I’m proud that starting my business has provided jobs and opportunities for other Australians.

My firm RSG Lawyers was independently nominated for Australia's Top 50 Law Firms in 2016 and has reached a number of exceptional milestones within its first few years of practice. The firm’s success has much to do with working with a great team and alongside an outstanding business partner.

Studying at VU equipped me with leadership skills, confidence, a sense of responsibility and knowledge, all of which I apply in my legal practice to this day. The University’s social environment allowed me to make valuable links with other students who remain within my network – and these people have added to my success.

As well as being a partner at RSG Lawyers, I am a Registered Migration Agent and a hip hop artist. I headed the 2016 pro-bono Homeless Legal Outreach Program (HLOP) and regularly speak in Africa and the Middle East on behalf of various organisations. This year I would like to conduct more seminars and motivational talks at schools to inspire the youth of today, and, of course, finish my mix-tape!”
