It is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to the Australian Law Students’ Association!
ALSA is the peak representative body for law students in Australia, comprising of 40 law schools and representing over 40,000 law students. As a law student, whether you engage with ALSA through conference, by accessing our resources such as guides or competition material, through opportunities advertised on our social media platforms or never engage with us at all, we are here, representing your interests.
As President of the 2017/2018 ALSA committee, I hope to engage with as many of you as possible. In 2018, ALSA will be running monthly virtual knowledge sharing sessions for law societies to engage with along with our 3 council meetings in February, July and September. For students, ALSA will be producing guides and other material to assist you both during your degree and post-university when seeking employment and other opportunities will be advertised on our social media platforms. This is my third year being involved with ALSA and I cannot encourage you enough to take up the opportunities that we offer to Australian law students.
The highlight of the ALSA calendar is the National ALSA Conference, this year proudly sponsored by ANU Legal Workshop, which will be held in Adelaide 2-8th July. This event brings together over 350 law students from Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region for 6 days of knowledge sharing, competitions, educational forums and social events. This year the conference team, the ALSA committee and our sponsors are focused on ensuring that conference is packed with activities that add value to your conference experience – I hope to see as many of you there as possible!
If there is any way we can enhance your experience as a law student in Australia, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or anyone on the committee whose details can be found on the contact page.
