President's Welcome 2022

Hi everyone!

 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Monash Law Students’ Society (‘LSS’). Here you will find information about all the wonderful work we do to serve the needs and interests of all Monash Law students.

 

The LSS is one of the largest voluntary student organisations in Australia. We are a key provider of services, information and events for almost 4,000 students undertaking their law degree at Monash.

 

The past two years have been exceptionally challenging with so much being moved online and the LSS being unable to operate in the same way that it always has. Nevertheless, we were able to continue to provide many of the hallmarks of the LSS, both in person where possible and online where necessary. In 2022, we will be committed to re-cultivating a social atmosphere, facilitating student advocacy and providing our members with more wonderful opportunities.

 

We have several dedicated portfolios geared towards supporting students in different ways. These include activities, careers, competitions, education and social justice. We encourage you to get involved in our various initiatives, as we very much enjoy seeing both new and familiar faces.

 

Get to know our passionate committee at our various events throughout the year, in our LLB Office (located on the ground floor of the Law Building, Clayton) or our Postgraduate Office (located on level 1 of Chambers, CBD). We are always happy to have a chat or answer any questions you may have.

 

When restrictions permit, the LLB Office is open every day from Monday to Thursday from 10am to 3pm and the Postgraduate Office is open every day from Monday to Thursday from 12pm to 1pm and 4pm to 5pm. Alternatively, we will be contactable via Facebook Messenger or via email (contacts listed on this website). 

 

I invite you to explore the website and learn more about our exciting plans for the year ahead!

Sexual Harassment Mission Statement

Throughout the 2020/2021 term, a ‘Sexual Harassment Working Group’ was formed by the VicLSS. This group was made up of representatives from each LSS/LSA. The Monash LSS is proud to be a member of this organisation. Together, we created a space in which the issue of inappropriate sexual behaviour in the legal sector could be discussed and initiatives to address this issue could be created.

 

Today as a collective, we are releasing the attached mission statement as the first step in our ongoing commitment to actively work to address the issue of sexual harassment within our student cohorts, at our universities, and in our profession.
