The Griffith University Law Society (GULS) is an unincorporated association with over 600 members. Almost all of its events are open to the public and it routinely welcomes a high proportion of non-members to its events – particularly its major social events. GULS is affiliated with Campus Life and the Australian Law Students Association (ALSA).




The GULS social portfolio is varied and expansive, catering to a wide variety of tastes. Its major social events are its annual Law Ball and Black Tie Dinner which are classy, prestigious events. It also has inexpensive and more casual events such as Pub Crawl, Law Revue and Dodgeball.




GULS has a very successful social sport program, fielding teams in netball, soccer and touch football. In 2014 GULS is also introducing a new focus on social justice and mental health, with an Equity Luncheon  and social justice guide in semester 1 and a mental health week and mental health guide in semester 2.




GULS runs a mentorship program which connects first year students with older students and includes a series of events such as the meet your mentor morning tea and the first year court visit. It also runs nine legal skills competitions and fields a contingent in the ALSA annual national conference. GULS publishes a variety of publications including a careers guide, first year handbook, electives guide, annual yearbook and regular newsletters.




GULS maintains an open door policy and office hours from 11.00am-2.00pm each weekday, that students may visit, enjoy a free coffee, and engage with the society. You can also stay up to date via our weekly emails (sent to all law students) and our Facebook page – just search ‘Griffith University Law Society – GULS’.
