As the President of the UTS Law Students’ Society (UTS LSS), I am honoured to represent the talented cohort of law students at UTS with their diverse backgrounds, passions and ambitions.
The UTS LSS is the peak representative body for all law students at UTS, from undergraduate to Juris Doctor and everyone in between. As the oldest student-run organisation on campus, our aim is to support and benefit our members through a number of initiatives, events, activities and publications. We also seek to equip our members with the tools to expand their experiences and develop professionally, personally, academically and socially.
Any student enrolled to study at UTS:Law is eligible for free membership. There are always opportunities to get involved throughout the year: whether through our internal and intervarsity competitions, contributing or editing our publications, or simply showing up to our events! I strongly encourage each and every one of you to be as involved as you can with the UTS LSS as it will not only enrich your university experience but it will also allow you to meet many like-minded individuals and create long-lasting friendships.
In 2018, our main aims are to strive to foster a culture of openness and support for all our members and to ensure that our initiatives directly cater to our member’s needs. We hope to see as much engagement from our members as possible and hope that every initiative provides a benefit to them. We are committed to promoting our students’ mental wellness and balance.
Finally, our vision for the members of the UTS Law Student’s Society’s is to ensure they are provided with diverse opportunities to engage with different areas in the legal industry and the challenges the industry is facing to ensure that our members are prepared for the future and are able to take a forward-thinking approach to legal challenges and are equipped to face the demands of a changing landscape for graduates.
Through our strong relationship with the UTS Law Faculty, sponsors, partners and community organisations we look forward to working hard in enriching the university experience for all our members.
