The academic side of law school comes with many challenges, however, our education team has prepared a variety of resources and events to support law students along the way. Whether it is through the LSS tutorial program to get another perspective on your unit's content, to get some advice on different ways to prepare for exams or to gain an insight into the ways in which other law students maintain a good mindset and relax in amongst the stress of law school.
Whichever resources you choose to use and events you seek to attend, we hope that they provide some useful tips and tricks to help you out. For any general inquiries please contact Megan at Education@monashlss.com
