Founded in 2007
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.
NDSLS 2021 President
The Law School holds a very honourable place, since the establishment of the Notre Dame Sydney Law School. The Notre Dame Sydney Law Society (NDSLS) has become the representative student body for all in the Law School at the University of Notre Dame Australia. I warmly welcome you to the NDSLS website, in humility and with grace and encourage you to influence the future of the NDSLS, during your time at Notre Dame.
The NDSLS has certainly become an integral part of the student experience at Notre Dame to help students engage in opportunities at social events, skills-building workshops, professional events and competitions. I am extremely honoured to be the 2021 NDSLS President and to represent such a high achieving cohort of students and I encourage you to partake in our wonderful events.
Notre Dame prides itself on inclusion for all, welcoming students from different faiths, beliefs and walks of life, globally. This is something embedded within the Catholic tradition and something in which I am honoured to humbly represent with pride. Notre Dame’s commitment to providing students with a rich and fulfilling experience is certainly notable and reflective of the indicative relationships at the University and within the Law cohort.
Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic and the hurdles the NDSLS had to work through, in 2021, our objective is to enrich the opportunities available, particularly from those missed in 2020. The Law cohort at Notre dame is only inclusive and supportive of all differences, something which we will continue to embrace.
The NDSLS is most certainly a wonderful society with fantastic opportunities for students to get behind and involved in. We definitely welcome and encourage all students to get involved and we thank our sponsors and the support of the Notre Dame Law community for their support.
Welcome to the NDSLS.
Law; an ordinance of reason for the common good, made by him who has care of the community.
