Students' Law Society (SLS)
SLS is the student government for academic and social affairs at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Law.
We fund all student-led clubs, provide access to exam study materials, organize social events and provide ticket subsidies, advocate for students on academic matters, financial aid,
accessibility, mental health & wellness, and diversity & inclusion.
The law school is a small community, and our membership in SLS is a critical part of our experience while in law school. The SLS and its executive are unpaid.
SLS Structure & Operations
SLS is comprised of two branches, the Student Affairs and Governance (StAG) branch, and the Social Affairs branch. The President and a Vice-President for each branch oversee the operations of SLS.
Student Affairs and Governance (StAG) consults with students to ensure they have a strong voice in law school policy and operations, advocates for students with respect to mental health, tuition, financial aid, accessibility, equity, and academic matters, and sends the weekly SLS newsletter with helpful student resources.
Social Affairs organizes a variety of law school-wide events for students to connect through, including Oakes Day, Halloween party, Law Ball, and much more!
Social Affairs also funds all student-led clubs to host their own events with lunches and snacks provided, and develops inclusive programming that reflects the diversity of our community.
The Students' Law Society collects two per-semester fees that go towards improving law students' campus life.
