First Year Activities
First Year Cocktail Night
The LSS invites all first year Law students to a recent addition to our LSS Calendar: First Year Cocktail Night. Replacing Law Camp after yet another cancellation, we are sure that cocktail night taking place in Week 1 will live up to all first years' expectations. On the night, we will provide a dancefloor, free flow drinks, quality bites, and most importantly - the chance to make friendships that will last a lifetime. So let your camp woes be a thing of the past, don your best cocktail fit, and come join us in celebrating the start of your first year of Law School at Monash!
First Year Dinner
This is the formal-like event that so many 1st year students never got to have! We’re talking about dressing up all fancy, a quality feed, meeting more people, and then dancing the night away in the heart of Melbourne. Can’t ask for much more!
Peer Mentor Program
The transition into university and into law can be a difficult one. We have allllll been there. However, the LSS Peer Mentor Program (PMP) is here to kick-start your law school journey and help you along the way! For more than 14 years, the PMP has been responsible for facilitating the efficient transition of first year students by fostering positive social relationships, and we look forward to continuing to do so in 2022.
With every first-year law student allocated to a mentoring group, you will be part of a group with approximately 10 fellow first-years, and two mentors who will be in their second year or above of their Monash Law degree. Your mentors will be there to guide you through your first year of law. All mentors are enthusiastic students who have had their own personal experiences at university that will allow them to answer any questions you may have - whether they relate to study skills to ace your exams, making the most of campus life, maintaining a balanced lifestyle during semester, or any other uni-related issues you may come across during your first year. Most importantly, they have all been in your shoes within these past few years and want to help in any way possible!
In the lead up to week 1, as well as during your first semester, the LSS PMP will provide you with numerous chances to meet and spend time with your mentors and fellow mentees, make friends, have fun, and prepare you for the exciting road that awaits you!
More information regarding these events will be communicated to you throughout the year!
