This interest has been furthered across a range of postgraduate studies in the fields of dispute resolution, mediation and conflict resolution, becoming Jann’s critical focus within Thredgold Law as a Nationally Accredited Mediator.
With a Bachelor of Laws, Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice and Master of Ethics and Legal Studies (Dispute Resolution) alongside a Bachelor of Education and Master of Applied Linguistics, Jann is more than qualified to handle your legal requirements.
