He’s not quite a legal beagle, but a poodle by the name of Riley is one of the newest faces at Melbourne Law School.
Nicknamed “The Juris Dogtor”, Riley is a therapy dog who visits the school to help relieve stress and provide a welcome distraction from readings and case note writing.
Other law schools have brought in puppies for events during exam season, but Riley will be a regular visitor to the faculty, attending every Thursday for six weeks as part of a pilot program. If successful, the program may be extended until the end of the year.
