Social Justice


The Brennan Justice and Leadership Program

The Brennan Program is a joint initiative between the UTS Law Faculty and UTS LSS that allows UTS law students to reflect on the concept of justice and develop leadership skills through voluntary service. To be eligible for the Brennan Award students must complete 100 Reflection on Justice (ROJ) points.

Points are accrued by attending Faculty and UTS LSS endorsed seminars, lectures and events relating to Justice. Previous events have included:
> Social Justice Conference
> The Inaugural Brennan Justice Film Festival
> Brennan Justice Short Film Festival

The nitty gritty

Justice Action Committee

The Justice Action Committee is an official committee of the UTS LSS. Committee members contribute to planning, organising and executing Social Justice Initiatives. These include raising funds for a range of causes, organising annual conferences and implementing their own initiatives.

Committee Applications open now!

The Justice Action Committee will meet every fortnight during Autumn and Spring Semesters with the Social Justice portfolio. Ad Hoc meetings may be held if required prior to upcoming events.
Committee members will have their hours credited under the Brennan Justice Program Leadership Through Service (LTS) component.

Initatives in 2019 include trivia nights, parliamentary submissions and assisting the Social Justice Portfolio with the Red Cross Blood Donation Drive, Sydney Homeless Connect, Westmead Children’s Hospital visit and Homelessness Sleepout and food drive.

Bring some happiness to those who may be in need of some laughter

The visit will take place during the Autumn and Spring Semesters and will require students to dress up in colourful costumes as well as run activities for the patients. This event provides the perfect opportunity to put on a smile on children’s faces and give back to the greater community.

Applications will open in July. First in best dressed!
