Francina Cantatore Awarded National Office of Learning and Teaching Citation

Francina Cantatore, Special Counsel at Cronin Litigation Lawyers, was recently the recipient of a National Office of Learning and Teaching Citation at an awards ceremony held at GOMA in Brisbane. 

There were approximately 90 awards conferred nationally, 30 of which were Queensland awardees, and Dr Cantatore's was one of two awards receiving a special mention by the MP.  The award was conferred by the Federal Government's Office of Learning and Teaching in recognition of her outstanding contribution to student learning in the Bond Law Clinic at Bond University. 

Dr Cantatore, who also teaches at Bond, is the Director of the Bond Law Clinic which provides free legal advice to small businesses and non-profit organisations.  Students have the opportunity of participating in client interviews and drafting advice under the supervision of experienced lawyers.  Cronin Litigation Lawyers, along with other local law firms, is a strong supporter of the Bond Law Clinic by providing pro bono legal advice to clients and mentoring Bond Law students.
