Welcome to the University of Wollongong Law Students’ Society (UOWLSS) Homepage! The UOWLSS is the peak representative body for law students at UOW, and its primary goal is the enhancement of the student experience at university, with a focus on life outside the classroom, participating and engaging with each other, as well as promoting and developing the study of law at UOW.
The provision of publications, support services and events allows students to expand their practical skills through initiatives such as Mooting Competitions and Careers Fairs, but also enjoy the social aspects of university life at events such as the annual Law Ball. We also offer opportunities for students to pursue other passions, for example, by writing for our Social Justice Review, or volunteering as a mentor for first year students studying Law at UOW.
The UOWLSS was founded in 1991 with a small initial membership of 20, and since then has continued to grow to a current membership base including all students undertaking a Bachelor of Laws at UOW as well as over 400 social members. We are proud to say that we have now grown to one of the largest societies on campus. The UOWLSS committee is comprised of law students at various stages of their degree, who have been elected by their peers and volunteer their time, effort, energy and passion to run the society for the benefit of their fellow students.
