The ALSA Council is a body comprising of the ALSA Executive, the ALSA Committee and two representatives (usually the president and a vice president) from each of the 39 law student societies in Australia.

The Council meets three times a year. As ALSA's managing body, the Council discusses any current issues in ALSA administration. The Council also discusses national issues in legal education to inform the stance that the ALSA Executive & Committee takes on these issues. The Council's most important function is as a knowledge sharing forum for law student societies. Each meeting includes a number of workshops, seminars and break-out groups on topics nominated by councillors based on issues facing their law society.

February Council is an opportunity for incoming LSS/A representatives to get together and prepare for the year. This year, each Council will have a 'theme'. February Council's theme will be 'Competitions and Planning for 2018'. Although discussions at Council will not strictly be about these topics, we are suggesting that Presidents and Competitions Officers/Vice-Presidents will get the most benefit out of attending. 

February Council 2018 will be in beautiful Brisbane, we look forward to seeing you there!!
