The University of Wollongong Law Students’ Society (UOWLSS) is always on the look out for new opportunities to partner with our future employers and our community to enrich the student experience and unleash the potential of our budding young lawyers.
Our Law Students’ Society was born out of a law school that prides itself on its deep commitment to social justice. This sets our law students apart because they learn to understand the real world impact of the law. Students are required to experience the law in action and apply their knowledge outside the classroom.
In 2018, our School of Law was ranked 85th worldwide, 8th in Australia and 3rd in New South Wales by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. In addition, the Federal Government’s Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching ranked UOW as the best university in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory for Law and Paralegal Studies.These accolades are in part, due to the generosity of existing our sponsors and the collaborative opportunities we are able to provide our students as a result.
2018 saw the expansion of our School of Law to the University’s South Western Sydney Campus, tapping into a new student market and generating significant publicity.
The year also saw the celebration of 100 years of Women in Law and the most diverse calendar of extra-curricular and careers events in the history of our young law school. Our students won national advocacy competitions, and went on to represent our region in international arenas.
The relationship between our students, and the professional and academic legal communities developed immensely.
The work of the Law Students’ Society allows our students to experience the law in action, to think critically and to focus on the social and ethical context in which the law operates.
With your help, the University of Wollongong’s we can shape outstanding law students – informed, independent and responsible problem solvers – who are prepared to venture into the legal profession.
Together, we can shape the next generation of legal graduates.
If you are interested in partnering with us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and email firstname.lastname@example.org.
