Alessandro Silvestri

Alessandro Silvestri

Alessandro completed his combined Master of International Law and Master of International Relations in 2018. We caught up with him to find out about his time at UWA.

"To be honest, my favourite aspect was the calibre and competency of the lecturers and personnel that are involved with this program. I had never encountered people with such talent, passion and knowledge in International Law; lecturers such as Dr Melanie O'Brien and Dr Fiona McGaughey, in particular, instilled in me so much enthusiasm in international law and advancing its various disciplines that motivated me to pursue an academic career."

"Finally, and also very importantly, all people with whom I have had the pleasure of interacting showed me great humanity and understanding. In 2018, I was passing through a tough period of my life, but the support that I have received from UWA and, in particular, the members of the UWA Law School, gave me the strength to complete my degree with distinction. Choose law for the people."
 
"Building on the above, while I will not deny that the workload necessitates an important level of commitment and work, the opportunity that the UWA Law School offers is unique. You will have the opportunity to deal with some of the best people, both academically and on a human level, that you have ever encountered. It offers you the positive challenge to grow as a thinker and as a person in a nurturing and supportive environment."

"I am sure that everyone has, at some stage in life, wondered how and why we create and then respect the law. Law is the vehicle through which you can make changes happen and make our society a better place to live in. Choose law to be the change."
