Student Tutorial Program – Applications Open

The Student Tutorial Program has been one of the longest running and most successful programs provided by the Monash Law Student Society. The LSS is currently looking for high-achieving students with a passion for their law studies to take up a tutoring position in semester one and semester two. We encourage all students who have enjoyed and received high marks in a particular subject to consider applying for this highly rewarding position.

LSS BEING Magazine Launch

To help you celebrate and relax in the lead up to final exams, stop by the Law Library at lunch time (12-2 pm) Friday 24 October to score a FREE BOOST JUICE and an advance copy of the Monash LSS BEING Magazine! The BEING Magazine is the LSS’ health and well-being publication and contains heaps of handy tips and advice to get you through the stresses of swotvac!

Week 12 Revision Seminars

Need some last minute revision for your law subjects? The LSS is running a series of 90 minute revision seminars presented by past HD-students in week 12 for each of the core and quasi-core law units, excluding RAW. Each seminar aims to provide an overall structure for each subject, with an emphasis on the key exam topics and a focus on exam structure.


Have you done well in Lawyers Ethics and Society? The LSS is currently looking for a presenter to take the Ethics Revision Seminar in week 12. This is a paid position and a fantastic way to help other students with their studies. If you are interested, please contact Lynton Brooks at [email protected] by the 6th of October with the mark you received and a short 100 word explanation of why you'd make a good presenter.



Exam Skills Seminar

The LSS will be running its Exam Skills Seminar on Wednesday this week (week 8) from 12-1pm in 11/H1. This is a great opportunity to learn how HD level students study, and how they would prepare for the various exam formats you might face during your law degree (open book exams, closed book exams, policy exams etc.). If you're free from 12pm, make sure to come down to H1 before it comes time for exams!
