ALSA is the peak representative body for law students in Australia. As an Australian law student, you are automatically an ALSA member. Your interests are represented by your own university’s Law Students’ Society (LSS), which forms part of the ALSA Council. Now, you are more than likely asking yourself, “How is ALSA different to my own university LSS, and what exactly does ALSA do for me?”
ALSA’s services can be divided into three broad categories:
- Acting as a national representative for Australian law students’ interests;
- Providing direct services for Australian law students; and
- Providing a knowledge sharing forum for law student societies (LSSs) across Australian universities.
You will find more information about all of ALSA’s activities through browsing the pages of the ALSA website (http://www.alsa.net.au).
