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.

Getting into the legal industry is a daunting task for many law students who find it difficult to get their first legal role. The UTS LSS Corrs Chambers Westgarth Breaking Into Law Panel 2022 is an invaluable opportunity for students to hear from UTS Law students on how they secured their first legal job.

The Full Bench is the LSS’ semesterly student journal. The theme of Volume II 2022 is ‘The Laws that Shape Us’.

We invite all UTS Law students to write 700-1000 words about an influential area of law that has changed the way we live.

Complete the Expression of Interest Google Form below and our team will be in touch with you soon to get started!

Please contact our Education (Publications) Director, Alyssya Warty-Hasan, at edu.publications2@utslss.com for any questions.
