Welcome to the new L.S.A. website

The Legal Studies Association of NSW is in its 23rd consecutive year of operation.

The association succeeds and thrives due to the dedication, passion, knowledge and generosity of its executive committee members.

The L.S.A. provides wide ranging support for teachers of Legal Studies.

The extent of this support includes:

  • The Legal Briefs journal
  • Information evenings
  • An annual state conference
  • A new to Legal Studies teacher’s day
  • Regional support for teachers
  • Preparation examinations for the preliminary and HSC courses

Further, the provision of student lectures in a host of locations including Western Sydney, Dubbo, Maitland, Armidale, Lismore and Wagga Wagga is a hallmark of the association.

The L.S.A. is your association, it is our association. All suggestions to enhance our service delivery will be considered, whether they are designed to enhance our website, improve our student lectures, upgrade our Legal Briefs journal or make our annual conference, information nights and new teacher’s day even more engaging and more informative.

L.S.A. members are invited and encouraged to attend and actively participate in all of the offerings that we provide. The annual state conference set down for March 17th and 18th has already been booked out. For those wishing to gain valued skills in teaching Legal Studies, we will be running a Specific Skills For Teaching Legal Studies day scheduled for Saturday 21st May 2016. Put this date in your diary until further details are available.

We also encourage members to become involved in the association through contributing articles, lesson materials and assessment tasks to our Legal Briefs journal which is published 3 times a year.

As Legal Studies teachers we should all work together to enhance opportunities for success for everyone within our cohort.

Jennie Mater
President, L.S.A.
