Emily Wooding is a paralegal at TJC. Through her studies and previous professional experiences, Emily has developed skills in legal research, brief reviews, client engagement, and drafting documents.


Emily has completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in International Relations at the University of Sydney and is now studying a Bachelor of Laws at UTS. Emily has worked in the criminal law divisions at Legal Aid NSW and the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA), where she has developed a deep understanding of the issues and barriers facing Indigenous peoples and their interaction with the law. The knowledge gained through Emily’s studies and professional experience has equipped her with invaluable experience as to the Australian legal system and First Nations Peoples’ interactions within the system. Emily was fortunate enough to be awarded Ngalaya’s First Nations Law Student of the Year Award in 2023. Emily hopes to expand on this knowledge through her work with TJC.
