Law Ball is fast approaching and that can only mean one thing – LSA elections are just around the corner. I have already heard murmurs that many within our Law Faculty are considering running for the LSA this year and the purpose of this article is to give you a brief overview of how elections will run this year. For those of you that haven’t, yet, considered running hopefully I can pique your interest!


Being on the LSA is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have at Law School. You will have the opportunity to bring to life projects you may have previously envisioned, make changes that will greatly impact an entire student body and get to work closely with a committee of dynamic and motivated people. It also provides a fantastic platform to meet staff members and other students you may otherwise have never interacted with.


The question of the hour! The LSA elections this year will allow Presidents and Vice-President’s the ability to run in a ‘pod’ (essentially they are able to campaign collectively) and all other candidates will run independently.

The positions that you can run for are:

  • President
  • Vice-President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Promotions Director
  • Corporate Relations Director
  • Competitions Director
  • Social Director
  • Academic Affairs Director
  • Publications Director
  • IT Director
  • Postgraduate Director

By-laws for the election are available now. We also have an election information session in Week 3 of next semester to run through the election process in more detail and give you an opportunity to speak to students currently part of the committee. Please don’t hesitate to contact the committee in the interim if you would like to know more about a specific role.


Nominations for the LSA Committee take place in the second semester of each year (prior to the Law Ball). Voting will take place online with the results announced at Law Ball.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the LSA via email if you would like to speak further about the upcoming elections – we would love to see as many students involved as possible!
