Congratulations to Bond Law alumnus, Hayley Tarr, who recently succeeded in registering as a specialist Patent Attorney – one of only 21 female lawyers in Queensland to achieve this.
Hayley works in Brisbane for Queensland’s longest established and largest firm of patent and trade mark attorneys, Cullen & Co.
She joined the firm in 2006 and, having registered as a Trade Mark Attorney in 2008, developed a specialty in all aspects of trade mark law in Australia and New Zealand, as well as in other countries of the world, working through Cullens’ international associates.
Hayley was one of Bond Law’s inaugural students in 1999, having been awarded a scholarship after graduating as dux of Somerset College with an OP1.
She continued her success at Bond, appearing regularly on the Dean’s List and Vice-Chancellor’s List for Academic Excellence, and topping eight of her subjects.
Taking full advantage of the opportunities available to her at Bond, Hayley successfully applied for our International Exchange program and lived in the United States for a semester studying at North Carolina’s prestigious Duke University Law School. She also completed an internship at Allens Arthur Robinson.
Not surprisingly, she graduated from Bond with First Class Honours in 2001.
In the years since, Hayley has completed numerous degrees in various fields – ranging from a Diploma of Yoga Teaching and an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy through to a Bachelor of Science (Genetics) and a Master of Industrial Property Law.
Through all of her studies, Hayley has maintained a close association with Bond University, working as a tutor, lecturer, course coordinator, senior residence fellow, senior tutor fellow … and yoga teacher!
