DLSS Geelong is committed to delivering a range of informative publications to guide you through your law school experience.
DLSS Geelong has created a Wellbeing Guide to offer students information regarding mental and physical health, insight from legal professionals and information regarding the services Deakin provide. We want this to be a resource that students can lean on when they feel overwhelmed or need reassurance that there are resources available to them and that everyone (even people in the profession) can get overwhelmed at times.
