Natasha Pallant has always had a passion for law.
‘Growing up, I was surrounded by people who needed help with the law but couldn’t get it’, she said. ‘So my goal has always been to become a lawyer so I can help people who can’t help themselves. To help get the best outcomes for people when they’re in a difficult situation.’
Fresh out of high school, Tash joined Ward Keller as a Personal Assistant in the migration and commercial law team in April 2021. She’s been accepted into her law degree, which she’ll start after getting some practical experience first.
‘I wanted to get as much experience as I can before I start my study,’ she said. ‘It’s been challenging but so helpful in helping me prepare—I now understand how things work in a firm environment. Getting an inside scoop before I start is excellent!’
Tash was born in Victoria but has been in Darwin most of her life. Outside work, she loves building her strength and fitness in the gym and quality time with her friends and family, especially camping.
