On the 23 February 2012 the Adelaide Law School hosted an Induction day for new students. The aim of this event was to welcome the new Law students with a day of information and inspiration as well as an opportunity to meet other students and staff. The day commenced with a welcome from the Dean of the Law School, Professor John Williams. The students also heard from Dr Bernadette Richards, senior lecturer, Adelaide Law School and a panel of Adelaide graduate law students. After the formal sessions students were encouraged to have lunch with fellow students and academic staff and visit stands set up outside the Ligertwood to find out about the variety of opportunities available to them throughout their law degree and beyond. During the lunch, the new students were welcomed by law student mentors. These mentors are part of the Eagles Peer Networking program, coordinated by lecturers Beth Nosworthy and David Caruso, and have undertaken training from the Transition and Advisory Service to assist students in the transition from high school to university study. The Eagles will present short topics during the first five weeks of the semester, in order to pass on tips they wish they had been given when they were first years themselves. They will also be available to first year students on a personal mentoring basis throughout the academic year.
