Sydney Law School sessional academic, James Norton, has been awarded a Rhodes Scholarship.

The Rhodes Scholarships for Australia were established in 1904, and enable nine outstanding students nationwide to study at the University of Oxford. Winners are selected based on such criteria as moral force of character and leadership, literary and scholarly achievement, and a commitment to service.

“Receiving the Rhodes Scholarship is a great honour, which I will need a lot of time to truly grasp,” said James.

“I am incredibly excited for the opportunities that await, in particular the chance to learn from the other Rhodes Scholars and students at Oxford. I am also deeply grateful to everyone who has helped me receive this generous award.”

James, who teaches Torts to students in the LLB program, hopes to study for the Bachelor of Civil Law and Master of Public Policy.
