Eliza is an Australian lawyer who was born in North Sumatera and spent her formative years in Riau, Indonesia. 10 years ago she moved to Melbourne to pursue a double degree in Law and Arts from the University of Melbourne. During this time, she gained invaluable insight into Australian perspectives of the Indonesian legal system, and formed a greater awareness about how the law compares between both countries. She also gained an intimate understanding of the intricacies and idiosyncrasies unique to each culture.
After graduating her double degree with Honours, Eliza moved to Singapore where she was exposed to the legal systems and perspectives of the Singaporean jurisdiction, both through her further study for the Singapore bar examinations and work in the legal field. Alongside personal injury matters, she was also involved in cross-border transactional work between Singaporean and Indonesian companies.
Eliza recently moved back to Melbourne in order to obtain her Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, allowing her to practice law in Australia. Eliza has continued to specialise in personal injury. Eliza is also a member of the Australia Indonesia Business Council and regularly writes articles in the monthly newsletters.
Eliza looks forward to offering differentiated perspectives to the conference in a mission to bring Indonesia and Australia closer together.
