Sydney University Law Society
is the largest and most active society at Sydney University, enriching all aspects of the law student experience since 1902.
What we do
Sydney University Law Society (SULS) is the oldest and largest student society at Sydney University. Founded in 1902, past Presidents include many judges of our superior courts such as the former Justice Michael Kirby of the High Court of Australia who served as the first elected student President. The history of SULS is one of stories of distinguished alumni contributing to the student experience during their time at the Law School.
SULS provides the law student community with a variety of social events, academic competitions, careers events, sporting functions, and initiatives that inspire students to use the law as an instrument for social change.
All law students at Sydney University are automatically members of SULS.
