About the Blackstone Society

The Blackstone Society is the peak representative body of law students at the University of Western Australia (UWA).

Representing over 1,000 students across undergraduate, professional and masters level degrees, the Society is one of the largest faculty societies in the State.

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, careers, equity, wellness and competition portfolios. In addition, the Society is responsible for advocating for law students at a university, state, and national level.

The majority of students that Blackstone represents study the Juris Doctor, so our students have already studied in a diverse range of areas such as commerce, arts, engineering and science, and have now gone on to pursue legal studies.

While the predominant law degree at UWA is the Juris Doctor, the Blackstone Society also represents and engages with students involved in the Bachelor of Laws (LLB), the undergraduate law majors in the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Commerce, and multiple Masters of Law programs.

The Society represents UWA Law students to the profession, the public, and the university itself, and is an integral part of the law student experience at UWA.
