Health and Wellbeing
Studying law can at times be overwhelming and stressful, and so looking after your health and wellbeing as a law student is very important. We offer a range of resources, seminars and social activities designed to assist in improving the overall health and wellbeing of law students. Here’s a taste of what’s in store this year.
The LLB Disability and Wellbeing Portfolio has teamed up with Monash Thrive to bring you some helpful resources which shed some light on some commonly faced law student health and wellbeing issues.
Monash Thrive is a new initiative that brings together students and researchers who are passionate about promoting and sustaining student mental health and wellbeing. They co-design and create all their digital resources like their websites with their student team and have worked alongside student groups like us to adapt to the needs of different student cohorts like Law students.
Access Law student wellbeing resources through the following links:
Be sure to stop by the Law Kitchen on the ground floor of the Law building for our morning teas held 2-3 times a semester. They’re a great opportunity to unwind, make new friends and learn about Monash Law over a cuppa and a cookie!
A true break from the hustle of law, this is a once-a-semester event not to miss. If the sun is shining, we’ll be on the lawn outside the Law building enjoying tasty, nutritious snacks. Students can unwind on beanbags, do mindfulness colouring in, meditate or watch a sitcom!
LSS Therapy Dogs - Boof & Kaz
Every Thursday we are fortunate enough to welcome Boof and Kaz to the Law building. We encourage you to pat and play with these gorgeous furry friends and who knows? They might help you to relax a little and bring a smile to your face.
In Semester 1, we hope to invite Clinical Psychologist and Mindfulness Consultant, Dr Richard Chambers, to speak to students about the importance of being mindful. Students will have the opportunity to practise mindfulness during the session and ask questions.
In Semester 2, a panel of legal practitioners will speak on how they look after their health & wellbeing as law graduates and lawyers. An opportunity for networking with the panel will follow, accompanied by light refreshments.
Study Snack Stand
Is it really exam season without the snack stand in the Law Library? In Week 12 of both semesters, the LSS will provide students with a variety of energy-boosting snacks in the foyer of the Law Library.
