We are here to support you during your first year of law school. Our first-year survival guide is designed to give you the fundamental skills that you will need for successful study in Law School. 

The Education Portfolio consists of the Vice-President, LLB, JD, Indigenous and International Student Representatives alongside the Director of Social Justice. Their collective aim is to organise activities to promote awareness of educational issues among UNLSA members and represent the Association’s educational interests to the Newcastle Law School and various other bodies. 

The various student representatives actively seek opinions and concerns from students in their relevant degree programs in relation to issues affecting those students. They aim to effectively manage a student-representative sub-committee, made up of students from each degree program and year group. By doing so, they seek avenues from both on-campus and external sources for student support and provide such information to students through advice or public articles. 

If you have any issues or concerns during your studies, please don't hesitate to contact our student representatives.
