Brody McDowell

Paralegal & Final year law student

Brody McDowell for Bendigo. Look out for that slogan in years to come, because it seems like the natural progression for someone with the drive, devotion and keenness that Brody has for local matters.

Currently studying his final year of a double Law/Business degree at La Trobe University in Bendigo, Brody joined the Robertson Hyetts team after completing a placement at the firm at the beginning of 2021. He is now in a permanent part-time role at the firm as he completes his studies and is working in the Commercial Law field to complement his strong interest in Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship.

Growing up, Law was never on Brody’s radar. His obvious career pathway was to complete high school and join the family Bricklaying and Landscaping business. But, after a chance discovery of a Mining Law lecture, the field of Law suddenly had an obvious spotlight shining on it – not only was it interesting, challenging and practical, but the profound impact a lawyer can have on an individual, business or community was immediately appealing.

“I’ve always wanted to stay local so I can support local. Law gives me a way to have a broad reach within my community – supporting local business has life changing impact which trickles down to everything, from the local economy through to community sport and the arts.”

Brody is an engaged, involved and interested student and team member. He was selected for La Trobe’s Academic Excellence Program for his consistently outstanding grades and has been a dedicated leader for both the Bendigo Student Association and the Bendigo Law and Criminology Society.

Outside of work and study, Brody is a committed powerlifter; the parallels the sport has to Law are not lost on him – focused practice requiring long-term planning combined with thinking on your feet and being in the moment, both reward discipline, consistency and a grounded approach.
