Monash Law Students’ Society International Students Officer will look after all the international students and make you feel at home. Please don’t hesitate to email Catherine (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are seeking any help or advice. We will also arrange the following activities to help you have the best possible time while studying here away from home!
International Student Luncheon
Free Lunches are organised for international students at the start of each semester. All international students are welcome to drop in, grab a piece of pizza, and make some new friends. You can exchange your experiences as international students with each other, seek advice for your life/academic career in Australia, or just take some time out, away from the demands of your Law studies to chat and relax with peers.
MSA Service for International Students
In addition to the services provided by the Monash LSS, Monash Student Association also provides international students with access to events and services that will make you feel at home, both on and off campus. Academic grammar videos and workshops will help you improve your academic writing. The Career Connect and ‘Let’s chat’ program would provide the greatest assistance in settling into a new country.

Plain Legal Writing Seminar
Writing in correct legal language is one of the first and foremost challenges for any law student and especially for any international students who may need extra assistance with English expressions. It is an essential skill while students are completing assignments, as well as drafting scripts for competitions as part of your law degree. Hence the Monash LSS provides plain legal writing seminars tailored specifically towards the particular needs of international students to assist them in achieving a better performance during their time at the law school. Please come along to our seminar and start speaking and writing like a professional lawyer from the first day!
