Room G23, 29 Ancora Imparo Way (Building 6) aka the Education Building

Organised by:
Law Students Society

The Monash Law Student's Society invites you to discover how to put your degree towards helping other people!

In the first of six seminars your LSS will be running in 2016, we have gathered a group of individuals to fill you in on how to make the most of the opportunities presented to you.

Social justice is the fair and just relation between the individual and society. Members of the legal profession have fought for a more fair system for those who must abide by it for centuries. Names like Michael Kirby, Julian Burnside and Gillian Triggs may be the first to come to mind, but organisations and people who are less exposed to publicity can do a lot to help people, and they could use your contribution.

If you feel passionately about social justice and want to learn more about how to pursue your passions during your time at Monash, this seminar will provide you with information on pathways, experiences, and volunteering options that a Monash Law degree can present to you. From social justice events with the LSS and the Progressive Law Network, to volunteering in a community legal centre, this session will give you an opportunity to hear from professionals, teachers and current students with similar interests to you.

You will hear from:
~ Jacqueline Weinberg, Lecturer and Clinical Supervisor at the Monash Oakleigh Legal Service.
~ Marius Smith, Centre Manager of the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law at Monash.
~ Jessica Steele, President of the Progressive Law Network.
~ Members of the LSS Social Justice & Equity team, to tell you about the Women in Law Breakfast, Social Justice Guide, Just Leadership Program and more.
