Welcome to Monash Law!
My name is Alicia Simonds and I am the Vice President (Education) of the Monash Law Students’ Society.
It is my role through the Education portfolio, with the help of Lynton Brooks, Jialing Chen, Perveen Maan and Natasha Simonds, to help you maintain your excellent academic results.
Your selection into the Monash Bachelor of Laws degree reflects your hard work and achievements at school. Throughout the year, the Education portfolio runs many academic programs and events to support your law studies, as well as develop your legal research and writing skills, with a particular emphasis on excelling in law exams and assignments. In addition to running numerous academic enhancement programs throughout the year, we also publish a range of Guides and magazines to enhance your law degree and give students the opportunity to contribute. We also help international and exchange students settle into life at Monash University and provide book scholarships to LSS members from low socio-economic and disadvantaged backgrounds.
Your time at Monash law will open up an entire world of possibilities beyond your academic studies so make sure you take advantage of all the opportunities from day one!
The LSS’ Education team are:
Vice President (Education)
Academic Support Officer
Book & Scholarships Officer
International Student Representative
Publications (Education) Officer
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.
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!
