Trainee Solicitor Jasmin Semlitsch wins prestigious Award

HopgoodGanim Trainee Solicitor Jasmin Semlitsch was recently recognised for her outstanding academic results by being awarded one of the six Una Prentice Awards

Jasmin was awarded the prize after graduating with the highest marks of all female students at Griffith University in 2012. 

The Award, named after Una Prentice, Queensland’s first female law graduate in 1938, gives recognition to the top-ranking female student of each of the six law faculties in Queensland. 

HopgoodGanim Partner Nicole Radice, who attended the Award ceremony to support Jasmin confirms:

“Jasmin is an outstanding woman – not only has she achieved incredible academic results, but has managed to do so while also settling into life in Australia, having relocated from Austria on her own and without her family, where she had grown up and completed high school.  The whole firm congratulates her for her marvellous achievement.”

Jasmin was humbled by the Award:

“It is such an honour to have my name listed beside some of the most prolific solicitors in the State.  Whilst I had not always planned a career in the legal profession, having slipped into this vocation by a twist of fate, I instantly developed  a passion about the law  and applied that fervour to my studies. This passion was further sparked during my time studying International Human Rights Law and Humanitarian Intervention at Oxford University in 2010. I am enjoying applying my newfound knowledge to my work at HopgoodGanim and helping clients to interpret the law.”

The Una Prentice Award is an initiative of the Women Lawyers Association of Queensland.
