The Arts, Education and Law Group Alumni Awards aim to recognise the outstanding achievements and successes of our alumni.
The recipients of the awards will be honoured at our awards night later in 2012. There are eight Alumnus of the Year Award recipients, one for each AEL element in the Group.
There will be one overall Alumnus of the Year Award selected from these eight recipients. One Young Alumnus of the Year Award will also be selected, recognising our young alumni making significant contributions and success in their chosen industry/profession.
