More than half of this year’s Lawyers Weekly 30 Under 30 finalists studied at a law school in New South Wales.

The 100 finalists studied across 25 universities, with 52 of them graduating from a university in New South Wales.

The law school with the most alumni listed as finalists is the University of Sydney, with 17 former students making the cut.

This was closely followed by the University of New South Wales, the University of Melbourne and Monash University which produced 12, 11 and nine finalists respectively.

The University of Technology Sydney, the University of Newcastle and the University of Queensland each produced seven finalists.

The University of Wollongong has five alumni listed as finalists, while Macquarie University, Griffith University and Australian National University have four each.

Notre Dame University, University of Western Australia and Flinders University have three alumni listed as finalists each, while Deakin University, Queensland University of Technology, Bond University and the University of Tasmania have two each.

Rounding out the successful Australian universities are James Cook University, the University of Canberra and the University of Adelaide with one finalist each.

Four finalists graduated from overseas universities – London School of Economics and Nottingham Trent University in the UK, the University of Virginia in America and the University of Otago in New Zealand.

The winners will be announced at a cocktail event hosted by comedian Tommy Little at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney on 24 June – tickets on sale now.
