Mentor program

The Buddy Program pairs incoming or first year QUT Law students with experienced students to assist in the transition into Law school. Buddies are encouraged to meet up for a casual chat and stay in contact throughout the Program. The Buddy Program gives new students the opportunity to meet likeminded students and share advice on how to get the most out of university.

A Mentor Guide will soon be released. Stay tuned!

For all mentoring enquiries, please email our Mentor Office at mentor.officer@qutlawsociety.com


Aboriginal & Torres Strait islander (ATSI) portfolio

In keeping with the spirit of Reconciliation, we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands where QUT now stands, and recognise that these have always been places of teaching and learning. We wish to pay respect to their Elders - past, present and emerging - and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the QUT community.

Our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Officer is here to promote the interests of Indigenous persons by engaging with Indigenous and non-Indigenous students in the Law School.
