AILA awards prize to Tasmania law students

13 February 2023

Two University of Tasmania students have shared an Australian Insurance Law Association (AILA) prize for achieving the highest marks in insurance law subjects.

Scott Currie, who graduated with a Bachelor of Laws last year, and Penny Stevenson – who will graduate at the end of 2023 – share the $500 prize.

Each year, AILA presents student prizes to the top students in insurance subjects at several universities around Australia, encouraging law graduates to seek careers in the insurance industry.

Newly Canberra-based Mr Currie, 26, has just joined the Attorney-General’s Department and says he is excited about the opportunity to put into practice lessons learnt in his insurance law studies.

“We examined different dispute resolution systems and considered ways to make them more efficient,” he said.

Hobart-based Ms Stevenson is interested in environmental law and says climate change risk is particularly important to the insurance industry.
