On 27 February 2014 the Adelaide Law School welcomed its new Law students with the First Year Induction Day. The morning started with a welcome by the Acting Dean of Law, Associate Professor Melissa de Zwart, followed by their preliminary lecture in Foundations of Law with Dr Joanna Howe. The next lectures covered the practicalities of the Law School experience. The Student Advisor, Rose Cecere, discussed the ‘nuts and bolts’ of the law degree and the serious issue of Academic Integrity was examined by Dr Matthew Stubbs. Kellie Toole introduced the students to the Lex Salus initiative and Priya Pavri from the Law Students’ Society told first years about what they could look forward to in terms of pub crawls, law balls, competitions and other student-led activities.
Students were then introduced to a careers panel ably led by Associate Professor Chris Symes. We had four panellists from the profession in attendance and the students were fascinated to see where their law degree could take them post Law School.
Adam Webster led a large group activity which got the students moving in the Scott Theatre via an interactive trivia quiz. He was assisted by the Lex Salus team and Eagles mentors.
The final part of the day was a showcase of extracurricular law-related activities held in the courtyard of the Law School.
