How to Get Involved

Interested in being apart of the DLSS Geelong?

** APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE CASUAL VACANCIES BELOW, IF POSITIONS ARISE DURING THE YEAR, THEY WILL BE ADVERTISED ON THIS PAGE **

Casual Vacancy (1)

Surely you’ve heard of the DLSS Geelong Law Ball? Or maybe you joined us at the Women in Law Luncheon? Ever wondered how it’s all done? FEAR NO MORE! The DLSS GEELONG have vacant positions for our committee in 2018! This is your opportunity to get involved in one of the biggest societies at Deakin Geelong. Need a way to boost your resume? Or to meet new people? Want to learn new skills? We have got you covered!

Check out our 2017 law students’ Pocket Guide to see what each portfolio gets up to. Alternatively, take a look at the blog posts we did before our AGM reviewing each portfolio’s work this year. Formal position descriptions can also be found in our By-Laws.

There are a few requirements though – if elected, committee members are expected to attend the majority of meetings (usually held fortnightly throughout terms in Geelong), attend DLSS Geelong events, and engage with our social media channels! Sound doable, and like something you’re interested in? Then we’d LOVE to hear from you!!

What’s the difference between being a VP or an Officer, you ask? Well, in short, the VP is the head of each portfolio and is responsible for managing incoming requests and delegating the workload between themselves and their officers. Both positions require a commitment to completing work to deadlines, sometimes during busy periods of the term, so time management skills and a genuine interest in working with the DLSS Geelong is a must!

Just fill in one of our nomination forms and email it to Lauren Solomonson at president@dlssgeelong.com.au. It won’t take long, but be sure to sure to give us as much information about YOU and why you’re interested as possible 🙂

The Casual Vacancy nomination form can be found here.
