Hannah Doole has a keen interest in international law and human rights.
The Year 12 Bega High School student topped Legal Studies this year and was awarded with a $100 University Co-op Bookshop voucher by solicitor Andrew Warren.
“I was really interested in the framework for society, and how it [Legal Studies] fits in,” Hannah said.
“I wanted to do well in it.”
Mr Warren said he started the annual award around 15 years ago to “encourage young kids to have an opportunity to study law”.
Hannah’s parents Alistair Doole and Sally-Anne Brown said they were pleased their daughter was being recognised for her academic abilities.
“I am happy for her to get acknowledgement from outside the family,” Ms Brown said.
