Viola Adiyo

A multilingual law and criminology student with a keen interest in pro bono work and social justice. Represented my university, Griffith University in various national mooting competitions that have shaped and enhanced my communication and advocacy skills. Strongly believe in social justice having completed pro bono work with the Innocence Project, where I reviewed wrongful conviction cases in Australia and made recommendations for the retesting of DNA evidence. Believes in the importance of mentoring, having mentored first- year law and criminology students with the transition to university, encouraging students to set goals and take an active role in their career development and being an inspiring role model. Committed to giving back through charitable activities. This is evidenced through my involvement with Salvation Army Australia, running Aid for the Blind OP Shop and local fundraising events to help the homeless, sick children and girls in developing countries.  My experiences at La Salle University, Mexico City, studying Immigrants and Human Rights and at Michigan State University, studying International Litigation and Arbitration, has alerted me to the importance of international perspective and knowledge of the global community. These experiences have also significantly shaped my understanding of different legal practices, further informed my cultural awareness and boosted my aspiration of being a global citizen with a globally engaged legal career.
