I studied law to help others

As a solicitor in the family law and protection division of Legal Aid NSW, Southern Cross University graduate Tom Kershaw is responsible for handling the legal matters of some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in his community.

Often, his work involves dealing with children and families who’ve been separated, with issues that might range from mental health, disabilities, drug and alcohol problems or domestic violence.
