Murdoch Student Law Society is the association for Murdoch University School of Law students interested in being involved with campus life. At MSLS we represent and support primarily Criminology, Legal Studies, Law and Business Law Students, however, we do not discriminate and invite all to join. We at MSLS are the biggest and most active society on campus and we aim to facilitate the balance between studying, socialising and connecting you to your future.
If you’re interested in joining MSLS, membership is $10. Please come down and visit us in the KWM Law Cafe, opposite Freehills Lecture Theatre, and we can give you all the information you need about being a member and the benefits you will get! We look forward to seeing you! If you can’t make it down anytime soon, our secretary can answer any of your burning questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT WE DO
MSLS hosts a range of internal and inter-varsity competitions based on legal practice. Members in 2017 can compete in Mooting, Negotiations, Client Interview and Trial Advocacy competitions. A balance of senior and junior competitions are run throughout the year to ensure everyone can get involved, regardless of confidence or ability!
MSLS throughout the year provides a range of social events for its members to ensure they have the opportunity to get away from the books. Our big events such as our Law Camp, Cocktail Party and Law Ball combined with smaller weekly on-campus events will ensure you get the most out of your time at Murdoch (and your MSLS membership)!
MSLS supports its members by running a range of programs throughout the year with a core focus on education. Publications such as our First Year Guide and our University Guide and events such as our Personal Branding Seminar gives you the resources and knowledge you need to succeed at Murdoch and build for the future.
Student well-being, social justice and community involvement are primary aims of the society that we endeavour to uphold. Events such as our Biggest Morning Tea and our Pink Pyjama Party always creates an inviting atmosphere and welcome donations. MSLS also actively participates in community events such as “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes”.
MSLS enters teams into a variety of inter-faculty and inter-varsity competitions. Our sporting program gives our members an opportunity to bond over common interests and show their healthy competitive edge. If you are the sporty type, we compete in Netball, Football, Soccer, Touch Rugby and Mud Volleyball, so keep an eye out for dates!
