The Global Law Students Association (GLSA) is one of Australia's pre-eminent law student societies and Melbourne Law School's only student association with a solely international focus.
Formed in 2011 from the former International Law Students Society, the GLSA is a wholly-student run organisation with over 1,000 highly ambitious, academically driven and internationally minded student members.
The goal of the GLSA is to provide its members with information and access to international career opportunities as well as the chance to participate in programs and events designed to facilitate and foster interests in, and awareness of, international legal issues. The GLSA also endeavours to address the specific concerns and issues faced by international students.
To achieve these goals, the GLSA manages three Programs: the Professional Development Program, the Global Careers Program and the International Students Program (in collaboration with the Melbourne Law Students' Society).
In successfully coordinating a large number of events and initiatives under these three core programs over the course of the academic year, the GLSA is proud to be at the forefront of Melbourne Law School's Global Thinking.
