Benjamin Bofeng

Young Lawyer Attains Master's

From a mixed parentage of East Sepik, Morobe and Western Highlands, Bofeng is a recipient of the 2020 Australian Awards Scholarship.

He successfully completed the 15 month-long program in March 2021.

Bofeng said the program critically considered the theory of development through law with an emphasis that sustainable means and local PNG ways of attaining development should be prioritised instead of merely relying on introduced, foreign ideas.
