Welcome to the Deakin Law Students’ Society Geelong, my name is Reid Hadaway and it is a great honour to serve as the President of the DLSS Geelong in 2019. Our 2018/19 governing Committee is staffed by dedicated and passionate students, committed to providing high quality professional, educational and vocational opportunities to our members. Each member of our Committee is a driven individual, ready to create innovative and relevant opportunities and resources for law students across all of Deakin’s campuses. It is my sincerest hope that the stalwart commitment of myself and my fellow Committee members will deliver ever increasing benefits to our members.
This year will be a year of change for Deakin Law School and a year of education and opportunity for our members. Our goal is to contribute to the creation of informed and career-ready graduates with the necessary knowledge base to be successful Deakin alumni. In accordance with this, we aim to provide engaging and informative educational experiences, such as seminars, panels and guest lectures.
Deakin University students are frequently ranked as some of the most satisfied students in Australia. DLSS Geelong is a proud contributor to this record and strives to ensure that all Deakin law students, new and returning, continue to have a world class experience. In 2019 our Functions and Careers portfolios will continue to deliver fresh and exciting events, offering students the means to have worthwhile social interactions to alleviate stress as well as build networks that will pave the way for future success.
As a final note, a successful year for the DLSS Geelong is one characterised by growth, innovation and openness. To our returning members, I invite you to continue engaging with us and being a part of the student experience we strive constantly to create. To our new members, whether in your first year or last, I extend the same invitation and ask one thing more; allow the DLSS Geelong to be a stepping stone on your pathway to success, and in doing so pave the way for those who come after.
I look forward to knowing you and I wish you a very successful 2019.
2019 DLSS Geelong President
