Joining the Canadian law student family at Bond University

22 September 2020

Are you considering becoming a law student at Bond University?

Starting a professional program is exciting! But it can also be a bit nerve-wracking. How will you know what to do? Is it going to be difficult to learn everything? Who can you turn to when you have questions?

The Canadian Law Students’ Association (CSLA) is there to help ease those concerns. Bond University is known for having dedicated Canadian law courses, so it’s no surprise that there is a long list of Canadian law alumni and always a large cohort of Canadian students. Many of those students are part of the CSLA and they have the goal of making the transition from undergrad life in Canada to law school life in Australia as smooth as possible.

You’ll always have a voice, as the CSLA represents Canadian students in conversations with faculty, administration, and university staff. They also help facilitate the process finding work once you graduate by hosting information sessions about the National Committee on Accreditation for those wishing to return to Canada to practice law and sessions for the Australian accreditation process for Canadians wishing to stay in Australia.

It’s not all business though! Throughout the year the CSLA hosts a variety of social events like Canada Day in Australia and competitions like the annual NHL Hockey Arbitration.

One of their big events is Buddy Night. Each year the CSLA invites new and returning law students out to meet each other and share notes, tips, and advice. It’s a great way to meet your new Canadian law family and start off your new student life on the right foot!
