Australia Day Ambassador - Kushaal Vyas

Khushaal is a Graduate Lawyer at Baker McKenzie having recently completed his studies in a Bachelor of Arts (Politics Major)/Law at the University of New South Wales.

At university, Khushaal was the President of the UNSW Law Society; the largest university law student representative group in the nation, where he represented, advocated for and facilitated events to support and assist in the development of the society’s student members. Prior to this, he was Vice-President (Social Justice) where he co-founded a regional volunteer program to work with community centres and schools in the Dubbo-Trangie and Wiradjuri Community and mentor disadvantaged Indigenous children. He subsequently directed the award winning “Yindyamarra: A Documentary” which followed the volunteer trip. Since starting work professionally, Khushaal was responsible for the inclusion of the Dubbo-Trangie volunteer program under Baker McKenzie’s Pro Bono and Community Service activities.

For his work on the Fairfield City Youth and Community Centre and Dubbo Volunteer program, Khushaal was awarded the NSW Premier’s Multicultural Youth Medal which recognises the valuable role of a young person promoting intercultural dialogue and co-operation. He was also the recipient of the Institute of Managers and Leaders ‘Australian Student Leader of the Year’ and twice nominated as the Australian Law Student of the Year. Continuing his interest in the multicultural space, Khushaal was invited to form part of the AFL NSW/ACT Multicultural Alliance Committee to promote multiculturalism in AFL.
