UTS LAW STUDENTS’ SOCIETY

About

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.

Women’s Mentoring Program

Following the continued success of the program in previous years, UTS LSS is excited to announce that the Women’s Mentoring Program will return this year! Applications will open 8am on Wednesday 15 February.

Female-identifying UTS law students will be paired with a female-identifying mentor with the opportunity for students to request a mentor of a particular background or identity.

This program is tailored to the needs, concerns and aspirations of women. We hope this intersectional approach to women’s issues will assist burgeoning legal professionals to break through the glass ceiling in the legal profession and be inspired by a diverse range of successful women. The program will officially launch on Wednesday 17th March, serving as the first opportunity for mentees to meet mentors. Refreshments will be provided.

For more information, please contact Jason Wang, Diversity Director at diversity@utslss.com.

COVID-19 NOTICE

An update from the Society: we’ve missed you

Earlier this year, UTS Law Students’ Society made the decision the cancel all our in-person events and initiatives as part of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. As the NSW government announces the easing of restrictions moving into 2021, we are excited to announce that we are looking to bring our events back in-person next year.

We are still working with UTS, ActivateUTS and the relevant government authorities on what the new guidelines mean for you and our Society, and we will continue to update you via our website, email and Facebook page.

The easing of restrictions will be a new phase for the Society. As we look to bring events back in person, we are committed to doing our best to keep up to date with UTS, ActivateUTS and government regulations, keeping our members informed and implementing all measures to ensure your safety and the safety of the community.

We look forward to welcoming you back in 2021. We thank our members for their patience as we navigate these unchartered territories. Please continue to take care of yourselves, and feel free to reach out to Vicky at president@utslss.com or any other UTS LSS Councillor if we can be of any assistance.
