Learning support

La Trobe Law School aims to transform student lives through learning. To ensure students are equipped for meeting the challenges of their academic and future work-life, the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Commerce has developed learning support services, offered at each La Trobe campus.

Flexibility

The terms 'full-time' and 'part-time' relate to the number of subjects you take per semester and therefore the amount of time you will commit to study. Most undergraduate and postgraduate courses offer full-time and part-time study options.

Blended Learning

Blended learning is a mix of face to face and online learning. It involves thoughtful, innovative, integration of face to face learning experiences with online learning experiences. The focus is based on the interactions between teachers, students and resources that assist students to achieve intended learning outcomes. We offer new and innovative ways to combine weekly interactive tutorials/seminars and online video/audio lecture experiences seamlessly and coherently, in a manner which responds to disciplinary variation and student learning needs.

La Trobe Law Students' Association

The La Trobe Law Students' Association was founded in 1992. It organises educational, career and social events for students as well as several public lectures every year. The LSA also publishes a number of online resources for law students every year.

Moot Court and Student Lounge

La Trobe Law School is renovating its Moot Court and will launch a new state-of-the-art facility in 2016.
