Benjamin James King is a former professional cyclist (AIS and WAIS dual scholarship holder). He raced with Lance Armstrong’s team for a year. He travelled the world and lived in the USA and Europe for the best part of 5 years. He completed his Law/Commerce double degree at The University of Western Australia, which took a bit longer than expected. He now works as a family/divorce lawyer in Perth.
Bejamin's journey since UWA.
I worked at 2 family law firms and a large medical corporate in a legal capacity. I found it challenging to find the 'right' job post-uni.
My favorite memory from UWA was the Law Skool parties in the quadrant and spending time with fellow students on Oak Lawn between classes.
What’s your passion and how do you want to make a difference in the world?
My passion is resolving complicated family law/divorce disputes by assisting people in not incurring huge legal fees to sort out their settlements.
What is the most interesting aspect of your career? Where could it go from here?
Performing court work as counsel
If you could share one piece of advice with a first year student, on their first day at UWA, what would it be?
Enjoy your time at UWA and do not rush to finish your degree(s). Full time work can wait.
