WELCOME TO UTS LAW STUDENTS' SOCIETY

UTS Law Students’ Society (‘UTS LSS’) is the peak representative body for UTS Law Students. As the largest student-run organisation at UTS, the LSS aims to elevate the standard of university life for UTS Law Students to its utmost potential. We do this by meeting their educational, vocational and social needs.

UTS LSS supports an open door policy and welcomes any ideas, concerns or thoughts regarding studying law at UTS. You are welcome to visit the UTS LSS Office located in CB02.14.104 at any time to get to know us a little better.

UTS Law Students’ Society would like to acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation upon whose ancestral lands our city campus now stands. We would also like to pay respects to Elders both past and present, acknowledging them as the traditional custodians of knowledge for this land.
