The Notre Dame Sydney Law Society (NDSLS) is a student society established in 2007 at the University of Notre Dame Australia, Sydney. The NDSLS aims to enrich the student experience through educational, vocational and social initiatives. As one of the youngest law students’ societies in Australia, the NDSLS has an immense scope for growth and continues to improve year upon year.
The individual and relationship driven culture of Notre Dame distinguishes it from many other universities. The NDSLS helps both to foster and to capitalise on this ethos by harnessing the open and friendly culture to reinforce the values of academic excellence, involvement in the law school, and development of the individual so that they can achieve their career potential.
Welcome to the Notre Dame Sydney Law Society (NDSLS)! My name is Olivia Passerini, and I am honoured to be your 2023 NDSLS President.
It is my privilege to introduce you to the NDSLS. Established in 2007, the NDSLS is proud of its history and its ongoing contribution to its Students, Staff, Alumni, Sponsors, and the wider community. We are a passionate team of 20 students who strive to deliver high-quality professional, academic and social opportunities to our student cohort.
Underpinned by the values of authenticity, inclusivity, and reliability - The NDSLS also strives to respect, promote and uphold the values and ethos of the National School of Law and Business and the University of Notre Dame Australia.
The NDSLS Committee has nine portfolios which all work tirelessly throughout the year to produce amazing events and provide our cohort with fantastic opportunities. The NDSLS frequently hosts a variety of social events and career-related events, and we also facilitate a range of skills-based competitions to help our law students develop both professionally and personally.
The NDSLS is an integral part of the unique experience of studying law at Notre Dame in Sydney. It is a welcoming and safe environment, and I strongly encourage everyone to partake in our events whenever possible! I look forward to meeting you all, perhaps for the first time or again, at our NDSLS events.
So welcome, and enjoy!
NDSLS 2023 President
