Congratulations to Alice Yan for receiving the WG Walker Scholarship. A little bit about Alice:


Alice has significant expertise in environmental law, having worked across the world, including in Japan, Germany and the U.K. She is a dual-qualified lawyer, in Australia and England & Wales. For the past few years, Alice has served in senior legal positions in the Australian government. Recently at the NSW Environment Protection Authority, Alice acted as the lead counsel for the state‚Äôs largest litter reduction initiative. Alice was appointed a member of the Australian delegation to the World Social Forum in Tunisia. 

As a Fulbright Scholar, Alice will explore the world-leading and often audacious environmental policies pioneered in the U.S. Over two years, she will specialise in the ground-breaking science that has driven these policies. Alice hopes to apply this learning to help shape the future of Australian environmental policy.
