Nick Carey

Nick is a penultimate year Juris Doctor student. He currently works as a litigation paralegal with a music copyright collection society, as a legal research assistant to three barristers in chambers, and volunteers at Marrickville Legal Centre

In 2016, an article of Nick’s was published in the Court of Conscience, UNSW Law Society’s social justice publication, and in 2017, he served as an editor of that journal. In 2018, Nick will undertake an internship at the Indigenous Law Centre as a student editor of the Indigenous Law Bulletin.

Immediately prior to studying law, Nick worked for six years as an operations manager and buyer for a boutique green coffee trading company. That work took him on regular buying trips to the coffee regions of Ethiopia, Kenya and Brazil.

Nick also holds a Bachelor of Music, Clarinet Performance (first class honours) from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. For some years after graduating he worked as a freelance musician and teacher. During that time he performed regularly with the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, and taught clarinet at several schools across Sydney.

Nick’s love of music keeps him grounded, and his love of good coffee is an advantage for law school.
