Take Control of Your Future - June
4th year student

It was so lovely to hear from you and the presenters in regard to general law school advice and the realistic side to studying law. I was really glad most of my concerns were addressed, it was extremely reassuring!

Thank you again for the wonderful course.

About me

My name is Dr Kath Hall.

I am an internationally recognised legal academic, have a PhD in psychology and law, and am the co-author of the 3rd edition of the Law Student Survival Guide with Professor Claire Macken (forthcoming 2021).

In 2021 I established Law School Success to provide all Australian law students with the support and knowledge to succeed and thrive at law school, and to develop their careers both in and outside of law.

Since then over 100 students have taken part in the free online course Take Control of Your Future. I have also assisted dozens of students to improve their CVs and cover letters, and prepare for job or clerkship interviews.
