UTS Law Students Society

The election period for UTS LSS 2017 council is fast approaching. Like last year, Executive positions may be filled by individuals nominating as a ticket or individual candidates, and Director positions will be open as individual candidates only. This will give any law student the ability to nominate and hold a position on Council. Voting will also be open to every law student at UTS.

What does the evening involve?

The Election Information Evening will be a 1-hour discussion involving a 2-3 minute overview from each of the 2016 UTS LSS Councillors on their respective roles, and discuss the new roles which will have their debut in 2017. We will also cover the election procedure, nomination procedure and campaign rules.

The UTS LSS Council 2016 has comprised a vast range of students, including: first year, postgraduate, combined law and straight LLB students. Each has brought unique experiences to their positions, and all interested students, are encouraged to nominate themselves for the UTS LSS Council.
