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.

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.

Exam Skills Seminar

The LSS will be running its Exam Skills Seminar on Wednesday this week (week 8) from 12-1pm in 11/H1.

If you're free from 12pm, make sure to come down to H1 before it comes time for exams!
