Law School Advisers

In addition to the University's Contact Centre, the Law School also offers assistance to Bachelor of Laws students through the provision of three advisory roles:

1) Law Well-being Adviser

The Law Well-being Adviser is available to assist students with concerns about personal matters and to act as a referral service where appropriate by providing advice on resources/services which may be suitable to assist students. This advisory service is available at key times throughout the semester.

For further information and to book an appointment with the Law Well-being Adviser please refer to Student Well-Being and Support.

2) Student Advisers -Professional Law Programs (PLP) Team

The Professional Law Programs Team can provide students with advice on more complex degree-related issues which cannot be dealt with by the University's Contact Centre. This advice extends to helping students to devise a degree plan if their progression is out of sequence for whatever reason.
