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.

Hi, my name is Grace Welsby and I am your VP Education for the 2020 UOWLSS. I have recently completed an international corporate law internship in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am also currently interning at PepsiCo as part of their in-house team. My role as VP Education is to ensure the well-being of all students and ensure they are getting the most out of their degree. The main events in my portfolio include First Year Mentoring, the Women in Law Luncheon and Inspire Evening. It is my aim to have students graduate from UOW as more well-rounded and inspired individuals than when they began their degree. My key focuses for this upcoming year are promoting mental health and diversity. I want all students to feel valued, cared for and seen by the University. It is only when everyone feels valued that we really shine! I am very excited for this upcoming year and hope to bring you some exciting new initiatives!

Hi! My name is Georgia and I am the LSS Equity Officer for 2020. I am in my final year of Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Commerce. As Equity Officer, I am committed to ensuring and promoting equitable opportunities for everyone. As part of this role, I will be organising events at UOW that promote equity in a range of ways, as well as supporting students who feel that there is injustice or inequality in any aspect of their law education and the UOW law community. I’m looking forward to what will hopefully be a productive and successful year ahead. If anyone has any questions or concerns about current equity issues, feel free to contact me!
