UTS LSS First Year Peer Mentoring runs in both Autumn and Spring Semester each year, and you can attend either depending on when you start your first year law subjects. Peer Mentoring is an informal place where you can ask all the non-content specific questions that you have been holding back since commencing your law degree. Sessions are led by other law students who have excelled in their first year law subjects, focusing on the basics that form the foundation for success at law school.
The topics covered include:
- The IRAC method for problem solving
- How to get through your law readings
- How to conduct legal research
- Essay and case note writing
- Legal principles such as precedence, ratio and obiter
- Wellbeing and resilience whilst studying law
- Note taking, study and exam tips
If you are enrolled in Foundations of Law or Ethics, Law and Justice, you will also see the subject “First Year and Internal Law Students Mentoring Programs” on your home page of UTS Online.
