Congratulations to Old Fintonian, Anna Wotherspoon (’14) who has been awarded a prestigious Supreme Court Exhibition Prize by the Supreme Court of Victoria for her Honours thesis. Anna is currently completing a combined Bachelor of Laws (Honours)/Science Degree at Monash University.
Anna attended Fintona from Year 7 and was involved in a wide range of sports including hockey, tennis and cross country as well as debating. In her final year at School, Anna was a House Captain and combined this leadership role with studying English, English Literature, Legal Studies, Biology, French, and Maths Methods.
"Receiving the Supreme Court Exhibition Prize was a wonderful way to round out my Honours experience. My thesis looked at whether animals are a suitable object of property rights be drawing upon traditional theories of private property. I landed upon this thesis topic because I have a longstanding interest in human treatment of and interaction with other animals.”
Next year, Anna will start her graduate year in law and hopes to secure a position in a commercial law firm.
