EDUCATION

Education Portfolio

The Education Portfolio is responsible for ensuring that the academic lives of students are supported and enriched beyond the classroom and representing student concerns. This involves representing students on a Faculty Level, a University Level, a State Level through the Special Committee of Law Student Societies, and on a National Level through the Australian Law Students’ Association.

UOWLSS is always in discussion with the Faculty, University and ALSA on a number of issues. If you have any questions relating to your degree, please contact VP Education, Kristina Komadina at education@uowlss.net.

Equity

The Education Portfolio is also responsible for a number of continuing Equity initiatives in 2019: a First Year Mentoring Program for first year law students, the Women in Law Luncheon, and a number of other programs to come. Any queries about these programs can be directed to our Equity Officer, Grace Welsby at equity@uowlss.net.

My name is Grace Welsby and I am your UOWLSS Equity Officer for 2019. My role involves organising and promoting events which represent the equity, diversity and social justice interests of law students at UOW. I am here to provide support to any students who feel they are under-represented in the law student community, or feel that they have circumstances which put them at a disadvantage in comparison to their peers. It is my aim to ensure that all law students have equal opportunities for career advancement and academic excellence.
