DLSS Geelong is committed to delivering a range of informative publications to guide you through your law school experience.

In 2017, new members who joined during Orientation Week received an exclusive copy of the Law Student’s Pocket Guide for 2017. This year we plan to launch a brand new Geelong Competitions Guide, offering a step-by-step breakdown of everything from Mediation to Moot Court. We also help to release a brand new Careers Guide, to help students navigate work experience, internships and clerkships. Don’t forget to check out our blog too, right here at!
