As our time in Australia comes to an end, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to visit this beautiful country. Fortunately, a few close friends and myself arrived in Sydney two weeks before the start of scheduled class activities. This allowed a lot of time to enjoy Sydney NSW and Cairns QLD.
During our time in Australia, we had the pleasure of doing and seeing almost everything suggested during class preparation for our trip. We visited many touristy places including Sydney Harbour, Manley Beach, Bondi Beach, the Sydney Opera House, Luna Park (the Coney Island of Sydney), the Botanical Gardens, and the Blue Mountains. We also had the pleasure of engaging in other activities including viewing the New Years Eve fireworks at Barangaroo Park, Field Day music festival on New Years Day, and snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef.
Furthermore, we had great opportunities to meet with some of Sydney’s best and brightest legal professionals. It was very interesting to hear their perspectives on white collar crime in Australia as well as how it differs from the U.S.
