Meet the Executive
Jaime-Lee Morrison, President
Jaime-Lee became impassioned to fight the Good Fight and raise the profile of law students in the Western Sydney University community when she discovered what invaluable work she was doing as a committee member of the Women in Law program enacted by her former president, Petra Perlitz. At 16 years of age Jaime-Lee was accepted into a Bachelor of Laws at Western Sydney. Now in her final year, she is expecting to be admitted as a solicitor in 2020.
Jaime-Lee's passion for law comes from her dedication to ensure people are provided with opportunity to receive justice, and this vision for equitable administration of law has been the seed which has flowered much of her choice in study, extra-curricular, and employment choices. Jaime-Lee describes herself as a person who works well under pressure, both in independent and collegial capacities. Jaime-Lee is the 2019 President of the Western Sydney Law Students' Association where she believes she will be able to utilise leadership skills she has fostered over her time at university. She has a range of legal experience however finds her passion in criminal, family and children’s law and wishes to pursue her career as a barrister. Jaime-Lee has noticed that there is a wide gap between what student's learn at University and what they learn in practice and is determined to provide students with practical experiences to assist them with their future legal career.
Johnny Nguyen, Vice President
Johnny is a fifth-year Bachelor of Business & Commerce/Bachelor of Laws studying at Campbelltown campus. One of Johnny's key aims is to ensure that the initiatives of the WSLSA are made accessible for students across both campuses.
Emma Cutmore, Secretary
The role of Secretary of any association is not something that can be doled out lightly, and that’s why the students of the WSLSA have chosen nobody but the very best to keep the affairs of their Association in order. Emma is a final year law student whose heart beats for nothing but the WSLSA. And maybe that dude from Suits. Nevertheless, this new role in the LSA (which supplants last year’s Vice President (Administration)) is a calling to a simpler time, yet another responsible WSLSA, and maybe something about the Corporations Act 2001 (NSW).
Juan Roldan, Education Director
Hailing from Columbia, Ohio (or maybe that was supposed to be high-up Colombia), Juan Roldan is the 2019 Education Director, which supersedes the previous role of Vice President (Careers & Education). Juan is an enigmatic, energetic and at times enlightened fifth year Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Business (Management) student. This latter degree has seen him grow into an integral member on multiple projects with 180 Degree Consulting as well as develop an exciting passion for commercial law, while the former has seen exciting development through his work as a paralegal at, among others, Madison Marcus, a boutique commercial law firm with locations in Parramatta and Sydney.
Grame Thompson, Treasurer
As a final year Bachelor of Laws student Grame brings a wealth of knowledge and experience (Editor: he’s old!). He is dedicated to increasing the professional profile of the WSLSA through liaising with firms and the university as well as making sure that all finances are accountable, within budget, and used for a proper purpose. Due to this he says “no” a lot!
Kymon Mansfield, Marketing Director
As a fifth year Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts student, Kymon is the sort of character that thrives at creating innovative captions to placeholder images. Nevertheless, the role of Marketing Director (which replaces the previous Vice President (Marketing) title) is not an insignificant cog in the WSLSA machine, and Kymon’s short term aspirations involve c̶o̶n̶s̶o̶l̶i̶d̶a̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶m̶u̶c̶h̶ ̶p̶o̶w̶e̶r̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶h̶u̶m̶a̶n̶l̶y̶ ̶p̶o̶s̶s̶i̶b̶l̶e̶ pushing the WSLSA to new boundaries of exposure in the society we live in.
Jesse Skiller, Student Engagement Director
Little is known about Jesse. What information we have on him which has not been lost to the sands of time indicate that he is a final year Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Business student with a keen eye for public service, the rule of law, and a fair shake of the sauce bottle. Clearly it shows that his business side nurtured an astute ability to engage in social and professional capacities, and this formed his motivation for this new role as Student Engagement Director, which supplants the prior position of Vice President (Socials). In reality Jesse is an ageless being, and we hope his intentions are benevolent.
