President’s Welcome

Hello everyone! Welcome to the ANU Law Students’ Society (LSS) where I have no doubt you will find your place in our closely knit ANU Law Cohort and thrive in the opportunities and atmosphere we strive to create for you. 

The LSS has traditionally been (and continues proudly to be) ANU’s oldest, largest and most active student society, permeating in some form into the life of every student in ANU law. Ultimately, through the provision of academic, social and professional opportunities and services, the LSS looks to enhance your university experience, and 2024 will be no exception! Our financial membership consists of approximately 700 paid members across the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Juris Doctor cohorts, and our committee of 39 members work incredibly hard on a weekly basis to offer every possible opportunity to our members.

As President, my role is to represent the needs and interests of our members in 2024, through maintaining successful initiatives of the past whilst curating new ones to meet the demands of the ever-evolving law student body at the ANU. I hope to be someone you feel comfortable in reaching out to about your experience as a law student here or if you have any questions about who we are and what we do.

I therefore gladly invite you to become a member of the ANU LSS in order to join a long-standing history of law at the ANU and to get access to the multitude of offerings we produce. With a membership, you will be able to attend careers events with our sponsors, gain access to our pre-exam materials and tutorials, compete in legal skills competitions, access exclusive and discounted tickets for our social events, hear directly from some of Australia’s leading legal professionals and much more. I am confident that wherever your interests lie, we will have something to enrich your experience during your time here. With the return to fully on campus learning in 2023, I am excited to bring all our offerings back to an in-person capacity for 2024, and very much hope to see you there!

As always, we are incredibly grateful for the support of our sponsors, partners and members. Without them, we would not be able to operate such a large and successful society.

To stay up to date with all of the LSS’ initiatives and offerings throughout the year, I encourage you to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Finally, if you have any questions or concerns, or would like to know more about what the LSS does, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Wishing you all the best,
Cian Bowes
