Law School Advisers

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

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

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