Careers

The Careers, Education and Wellbeing (CEW) team organises several important, informative seminars and events to help students navigate their career paths. It has also been responsible for the revamp of FLSA’s careers publication.

Some of the initiatives planned for 2019 are:

  • Trivarsity Law Fair- a joint initiative of all three South Australian universities to provide an opportunity for law students and graduates to meet various employers.

  • Women in Law Panel Session- a celebration of the achievements of women in the legal profession. We invite distinguished guests from law firms to journey through their career, explore the challenges they’ve faced and reflect on the successes they have had.

  • Clerkship Evening- a panel session made up of guests from three top law firms; typically a recent graduate, a senior associate and a HR representative. It is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about clerkships, the application process, and further career advice.  

  • Alternate Careers Seminar- a seminar that explores several career options outside legal practice.

 

The Road Ahead: Career Insights from Flinders Law Alumni

FLSA is an organisation that endeavours to be innovative, fresh and relevant to our audience. In 2019 we are introducing a new publication. This is based on the model of our discontinued Careers Guide, which won the Australian Law Students’ Association’s (ALSA) Award for the Best Careers Publication in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. This is a testament to the outstanding quality of FLSA’s continuing commitment to producing a professional and useful resource.

This guide is a personalised publication for Flinders Law Students celebrating and detailing the achievements of both past and current students. It includes articles about their studies and graduate success in both SA, nationally, and internationally. Current students will be able to use the guide to tailor their career paths to their desired outcomes.
