Rachael Jones

The Trustees of the Yvonne A M Smith Charitable Trust are pleased to announce that the winner of the 2018 scholarship is Rachael Jones.

Rachael completed her Law Degree at Otago University and from there became a Judges Clerk.  Since 2016 she has been a solicitor for a top New Zealand law firm within their litigation team.

During her time at Otago University, Rachael was both a tutor and mentor for other Maori students which deepened her understanding of indigenous disempowerment.  Rachael will be focussing her studies towards indigenous rights and hopes to return to New Zealand to practise indigenous litigation.
