2016 Law Inspiration Evening

Monash Scholars Program in partnership with Monash Law, is excited to offer the inaugural Law Inspiration Evenings for 2016.

At Monash Law, we are extremely proud of the achievements of our alumni. We know that a Law degree can provide you with a world of career opportunities, but we’d like you to hear from our talented Alumni, rather than take our word for it. Come to our Law Inspiration Evenings and listen to what our graduates have done with their studies and where their Monash Law degree has taken them. You will have the opportunity to question our speaker and chat with current students, so you can gain a real perspective of where your Law degree might take you.

Matcha Mylkbar, Co-Owner
Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws, 2012

Sarah started her working life as a mergers and acquisitions lawyer at a leading international law firm. While law
was a wonderful launching pad affording her several years of invaluable learning and development both in Australia
and overseas, it became increasingly difficult for her to balance the demanding professional lifestyle with her more
creative and adventurous impulses. When she and her partner Nicholas started a small health food business, Matcha Maiden, as a humble side project Sarah discovered her passion in fact lies where she can flex her creative muscles, indulge her love for human interaction and work from new and exciting places every day. Fortunately, the pair had stumbled across a sizeable gap in the domestic and international markets and found themselves running a booming global business in a matter of months, allowing Sarah to hang up the suits and heels to step into the business full-time 
as a blossoming “funtrepreneur”.
PresenterDate: Wednesday 12 October
