The Student Legal Education Group (SLEG) was founded at UNSW over 30 years ago by students with a passion to improve access to justice, providing minority disadvantaged groups with basic legal knowledge and understanding their rights.
SLEG is a non-profit, non-government organisation that seeks to engage, educate and empower members of the community through law-related education. We seek to equip schools, as well as local and regional community groups, with the knowledge to understand, engage with and access the law in a practical context.
Coordinator- Helping to prepare presentations, train presenters, liaise with the UNSW Law School, solicitors and other external stakeholders, and overall planning and organisation involved in executing the smooth running of the program
Student Representative (Presenter)- facilitate and present seminars and workshops to disadvantaged schools and local and regional communities to equip program participants with the knowledge to engage with the law.
Terms 1, 2 and 3. 20 hours total commitment.
Generally SLEG has 1-2 training sessions for Presenters before they are allocated school presentations to go and present at, being taught on how to go through the various modules and strategies to engage the high school students
Schedule of activities/events:
School presentations are booked on a rolling basis depending on when the school would like us to come in.
The Regional trip, held annually, is where a number of coordinators and presenters go to a regional town for several days to present at various disadvantaged schools in the region e.g. this year we are planning to go to Tamworth for 4 days and 3 nights to present to disadvantaged schools in that region
Internal SLEG meetings occur weekly or fortnightly
