Jessup Mooting Competition

Applications are now open for the Jessup Mooting Competition.

This is a great chance to learn some valuable skills and a great networking opportunity. It’s also not bad timing in that it’s over the summer break if you have elected not to study during Trimester 3.

If you would like to get involved, please have a look at the following documentation and send an email to us at lsociety@une.edu.au.

Those based in Armidale would probably be most beneficial, though we’ve got some capacity in external delivery so please don’t let your mode of delivery stop you from giving it a go. The School of Law will provide academic and financial assistance if we are able to field a team.

April/May Intensives

UNELSS would like to extend a warm welcome to all students who are attending the upcoming April/May residential schools.  Below you will find details of the events we have planned- come and join us, and get involved in your Law Students’ Society.

Armidale Campus:

  • on both days of each law intensive, the LSS will provide morning tea in the LSS office – while there, you might like to join the LSS ($10 for the life of your degree) or buy a t-shirt
  • on the first day of each law intensive, the LSS will provide lunch in the Law School courtyard
  • on the second day of each law intensive, a BBQ will be available in the top courtyard for all visiting external students
  • on Monday 7 April, there will be a trivia night at the uni bar – we would love as many students as possible to join us

FutureCampus Parramatta: 

  • each day of each intensive, morning tea will be catered for by an external company and made available in the kitchen area. A coffee machine is also available for use.

With most LSS representatives based in Armidale, unfortunately the LSS will not be present at the FutureCampus to greet you. But, we hope you have a great time at your residential school.
