We provide a full calendar of academic competitions and career based events, including Moot Courts, networking evenings and practical legal training seminars. In keeping with our motto “on the way to the bar”, we also provide some of Deakin’s most popular social events, including the annual Law Ball and Pub Crawl, whilst promoting Deakin’s law graduates to successfully merge into the legal fraternity and beyond.
