Hey guys and welcome to week 4.
How time flies! I certainly hope everyone is staying on top of their study better than I am!
By the end of Monday the Blackstone Committee will also have three brand new JD students on our committee. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated on who these students are, what their roles are and how they can best help you as students in the Law School.
This Friday also marks the official launch of the Blackstone Women in the Law Mentoring Scheme. For those of you lucky enough to get involved, this is an amazing opportunity and one that I’m sure you will gain a lot out of. For those who missed out, there may be opportunities later in the year for you to attend other WILMS events, and I strongly encourage all female law students returning in 2014 to get involved. I would particularly like to thank Blackstone’s WILMS Director Katy Rengel and our Equity Vice-President Kate Ponting for all their hard work leading up to this week and their ongoing support of this program.
As always, feel free to email (email@example.com) or call me (0431 969 084) if you have any questions or are just chasing a chat.
If you missed the Volunteering launch, check out the online handbook for details on how you can get involved in 2013! We have more partnerships than ever before, including community legal centres, Ronald McDonald House and student mentor programs. Check it out here.
Start to get excited everyone because PROSH is coming up fast! Jump onto the Facebook page to vote for your favourite theme for the law school. Watch this space to hear about what Blackstone and the law school will be doing for this amazing event (it’s going to be huge!).
Did you know that highly coveted graduate programs such as DFAT will ask for details of any academic work you have had published?
If the publications section of your CV is looking a little bare, you’re in luck – we are currently calling for submissions for the first issue of Onyx for 2013!
Onyx is an academic publication produced by the Blackstone Society showcasing assessment pieces and private research work. If you have submitted something for assessment that you would like to see published, or have undertaken some research that you would like some exposure for, email it through to firstname.lastname@example.org for submission.
