Welcome to the USC LSA

A word from the President

It is with great pleasure I welcome you to the University of the Sunshine Coast Law Students’ Association’s (USC LSA) website.

This is a platform where you will be able to come and find out information about the Association such as key dates during the academic calendar, events and initiatives as well as purchasing membership and tickets to our major events.

The Association is a peak representative body for law students at the University. We are passionate about the student experience and aim to assist students in a number of ways to enhance their education and skills needed outside of Law School. I think I speak on behalf of the majority of the law student cohort when I say that being a member of the USC LSA is beneficial in so many ways.

The USC LSA is incredibly grateful to have a fantastic working relationship with the USC Law School. As an Association we act as an advocate body for students’ interests and maintain a close dialogue with the Law School.

An opportunity that you will receive whilst at law school is undertaking course work at the Suncoast Community Legal Service (SCLS) as part of LAW101-102 and the elective subject, LAW311. This is extremely beneficial for students because you are able to practice your legal skills like client interviewing and legal research at the Service in a supervised environment.

The Sunshine Coast Law Association (SCLA) has also been a major supporter of the Association since its inception in 2014. I highly recommend that all law students aspiring to practice here on the Sunshine Coast or wider Brisbane region become a student member of SCLA and attend as many events as possible.

I am very excited to work with the new 2019 Committee in bringing you another year of amazing events and competitions. We have some really great things planned for the year and I would love to see as many of you involved as possible!

If you see me around campus please come and introduce yourself, I would love to meet you.

Tanisha Watts,
President 2019
