For Your Class

Organise a Reunion

If you're thinking of organising a reunion, please let us know. We'd love to be involved and can provide some services to help you make your event a success. Our Alumni Team can:

  • Provide a class list of alumni in your year
  • Promote your reunion on the Law School website, social media and in alumni newsletters
  • Put you in contact with available University venues
  • Provide advice and support.

Class Correspondent

You may wish to serve as an ambassador for your graduating class. You can collect updates from your fellow classmates and contribute to content for MLS News or e-Brief, the School's alumni magazine and e-newsletter. You may also nominate fellow classmates for Industry/Alumni awards.

In Your Region

Regional or International Alumni Receptions

Even if you are living or working overseas, you can still keep connected with Melbourne Law School and network with other alumni. The University of Melbourne regularly hosts receptions for overseas alumni. You can get involved by:

  • Volunteering your time to help contact fellow alumni in your personal or professional network
  • Provide a venue for an alumni event. This may include a law firm, a private gallery, a restaurant or a private residence
  • In-kind donation – contribute to the cost of catering or venue
  • Volunteer to speak at an event and deliver a presentation on a relevant subject

Participate in Welcome Home events

The University hosts a number of Welcome Home receptions for international students returning to their home countries after graduation or Australian students relocating overseas. Alumni are encouraged to participate at these events to welcome new graduates, share career insights and advice through networking.

Alumni Groups and Chapters

Volunteer your time as a committee member for an existing Alumni Group or start a new group. Committee members of Alumni Groups are great ambassadors for the School and the University. These volunteers are responsible for planning and organising meaningful engagement activities for fellow alumni in their region.

For Students

Becoming a Mentor

The Melbourne Law School Mentor Program aims to provide all MLS students with a link to the profession and exposure to the practical realities of working in the law. Mentors enjoy the opportunity to develop a relationship with the next generation of law graduates, in addition to maintaining a relationship with the Law School.

We are now seeking your help to accommodate the growth of the program. For more information about the program and to register your interest, please click here.

Hosting an Intern

Your workplace may be able to provide an opportunity for a student to experience law outside the classroom. Internships provide a valuable bridge between the theory of law and the reality of practice. Equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to work in the real world, students can improve their employability upon graduation.

Partnerships are sought with organisations across the private, public and community sectors.

Mooting and Competitions Volunteer

Mooting and other competitions are an integral part of studying law at Melbourne Law School. Alumni with litigation experience are needed to help coach and provide feedback to students.
