Impact with Monash Law Students
We aim to launch a new generation of lawyers who are ambitious, adaptable and innovative, with empathy and intelligence to hit the ground running.
Through hands-on experience, they have come to understand that legal problems are embedded in a social context. Through internships and clinical experience, our students are exposed to a range of opportunities to build their skills outside of their legal training including business skills, project management expertise and digital literary, preparing them for any field.
Clinical Legal Education
Every undergraduate and JD student has the opportunity to work in our clinical legal education program. The program, the first of its kind in Australia, gives students experience working with real clients on real cases under the supervision of practising lawyers.
At the same time, it provides representation and advice to people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to access justice.
Ways to Engage
Sponsorship of Law Clinics
Our Monash Law Clinics help provide students with Clinical Legal Experience to become work-ready graduates. The feedback we receive from both students and industry has been fantastic and is one of the pillars that sets Monash Law school apart.
What we are most proud of is the real impact our clinics have in the community, supporting some of the most vulnerable members in their time of need.. By sponsoring a Monash Law clinic you will be making a real impact on the learning outcomes of our students while also supporting these vulnerable members of our community.
Co-delivery of Law Elective Unit
Sponsorship of the law elective unit includes naming rights and opportunity for keynote address at the beginning and end of each unit. Other supplementary initiatives can be negotiated on a case by case basis. This provides an opportunity for any organisation to embed their name and reputation in the consciousness of current and future generations of Monash law students
Sponsorship of Student Leadership Program
Our Leaders Program has been developed to cultivate Monash Law students for future leadership positions. Activities undertaken during the program develop a range of skills relevant to leadership in a student's studies and career. This program provides the opportunity to help shape the employability focus of the program, and position your firm as a leader in the future of the professions. You will be engaging and have the opportunity to mentor some of our brightest students while developing a pipeline of talent for your firm.
Sponsorship of Honours Program
The Monash LLB (Hons) program provides the best grounding for this cohort of students to move from academic excellence through to legal and wider community leaders. The honours program is tailored every year to the individual cohort based on their needs and the ever changing legal market. Our industry partner plays an important role in cultivating what is needed in industry currently while engaging with some of our best and brightest students.
