The QUT Law Society Inc. (QUTLS) is the peak representative body of law students at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT). As an incorporated, volunteer student association, it seeks to holistically enhance the social, academic, and professional experiences of all students enrolled in The Faculty of Law at QUT.
Representing over 2,500 students across undergraduate, graduate, professional and masters level degrees, the Society is the largest faculty society in Australia.
In conjunction with the academic faculty, the Society is responsible for the student experience on campus and runs a wide range of events across social, sporting, careers, equity, educational, and competition portfolios. In addition, the QUTLS is responsible for advocating for law students at a university, state, and national level.
The QUTLS provides a variety of services to the students. We host a variety of educational and professional events which gives students the opportunity to connect and network with not only their peers, but with the broader legal community as well.
In addition to conducting extensive educational, professional development and support programs, we produce publications such as Springboard (the annual careers guide), Torts Illustrated (the biannual magazine), and the First Year Guide to assist students in their transition to tertiary education and professional practice.
The majority of students that the QUT Law Society represents study the Bachelor of laws (Honours) degree, with 75% of students coupling this with business, science or arts degree.
The QUTLS acts as integral link between students, the legal industry, and the Law Faculty.
