Sessions will take place on every Tuesday 13:00-14:00 at G.05, 50 George Square. Note that the only exception will be the second session, which will be on 25th Thursday instead of Tuesday 23rd in the same room.

LawPALS groups 2015/16

Dear first years and newly arriving exchange students,

You have now been allocated into one of the LawPALS groups. Find out who else is in your group, where your sessions will take place, also who are your student leaders.

Also, check out the profiles of your student leaders and do not hesitate to chat to them if you spot them around campus! They will also send you an email with further information about your sessions – feel free to ask them if you have any questions about your studies.

If for some reason you cannot find your name on any of the lists but you are currently enrolled in LLB programme at Edinburgh Law School, send us an email at lawpals@ed.ac.uk (with your matriculation number) and we will put you into one of the groups.

LawPALS during Welcome week

Dear First years,

here’s what you need to mark in your diaries for your freshers’ week:

we are running our Introductory LawPALS Lecture at 11am, 17 September (Thursday) at Appleton Tower LT 4.

It will be followed by a quick tour around campus, done in your small LawPALS groups, and with your Student Leaders sharing the most important tips of accessing tutorial rooms, libraries, etc.

Looking forward to meeting you all on Thursday.

LawPALS session outline for 2014/15 now published!

Dear First Year LLB students!

We have now uploaded the schedule of LawPALS sessions for the upcoming academic year.

You can have a look at it here.

What’s so new and different about it?

Well, for the first time we are intending to hold a separate session on exams in late November – to try and create space for some last minute advice, and to hopefully ease the stress of that first ever exam revision.

Also, there is a newly adapted schedule designed especially for those doing a Graduate LLB degree – we made it shorter and hopefully better adjusted to your needs (many thanks to all those who provided their feedback last year, and to our Grad LLB student leaders, Mikey and Chris, for putting it together!).

Training course for the Leaders

Dear Student Leaders,

this is just a brief reminder that the training course for both, new and returning student leaders, will be taking place 4-5 September 2014. It will last the full day on Thursday, and we should finish around 3pm on Friday. The programme will be sent out to you via email.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Regards, Gigi and Lindsay
