Flinders Law leads to Rhodes Scholarship
Law graduate Jordan Gifford-Moore is settling into campus life at the University of Oxford as South Australia’s 2017 Rhodes Scholar, having received one of the world’s most prestigious scholarships.
Famous former Rhodes Scholars include Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, former U.S. President Bill Clinton, and former AFL Chairman Mike Fitzpatrick.
At Oxford, Jordan plans to continue his commercial law studies, specialising in public-private partnerships (PPPs) – a method of financing infrastructure projects between the public and private sectors.
“After graduation, I hope to work and learn at the World Bank PPP Centre, before returning to Australia,” Jordan said, adding that Australia is in a prime position to help in the development of Asia-Pacific nations.
“Many of these developing nations are desperate for social infrastructure investment,” he said.
Having previously volunteered with the Red Cross tutoring English to refugees, Jordan now plans to join the Oxford Human Rights Hub.
