About the program

LawPLUS is a peer mentoring program designed to assist students in adjusting to university life and the unique experiences of law school. The program is a joint initiative of the UNSW Law Faculty and Law Society, and aims to support new law students by organising regular weekly group meetings, social events and skills workshops.

The objectives of the program include providing a support network for new law students that will extend beyond the tenure at law school, to educate students about mental health issues and promote collegiality in the Law Society, and to encourage student involvement with the Law Faculty, Law Society and university life. Students will be randomly allocated into groups in order to facilitate the formation of diverse friendships in a welcoming and friendly environment and be mentored by two mentors on how to effectively transition into law school.
