Public Panel Event: “Free Trade Agreements: What’s In It For Australian University Graduates?”

La Trobe Law School, is pleased to invite you to the “Free Trade Agreements: What’s in it for Australian University Graduates?” Public Panel event, on 21 September 2016.

Australia’s trade landscape has recently been populated with some significant free trade agreements including those with China, Japan and Korea. Will these FTAs translate into more employment opportunities for Australian University graduates or increase competition?

Join us at ACMI, Federation Square on Wednesday the 21st of September where the former Federal Minister for Trade and Investment, The Hon Andrew Robb AO, the former Member for Wills, The Hon Kelvin Thomson and other experts in the international trade and law sector share their perspectives on free trade agreements and their implications for Australian University graduates.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear our expert panel address:

  • The impact of Australian FTAs on general national employment
  • The opportunities opened up for Australian University graduates by FTAs concluded by Australia
  • The Challenges and Risks for Australian University graduates presented by FTAs
  • The implications of the FTAs for law graduates
