The Law Peer Writing Support provides individual consultations (maximum 30 minutes) to international students enrolled in one of the law undergraduate or postgraduate programs. The consultations are restricted to checking the use of English grammar, sentence structure, spelling and general advice on the use of the appropriate referencing style (i.e. Australian Guide for Legal Citations, 4th ed.). No advice will be provided on the content of the written assessment. One-to-one peer writing support is an effective way of identifying common grammar and spelling errors, and providing feedback on one’s writing.

Peer Writing Support Leaders also play an important role in providing information and directing international students to other support programs offered at the UQ, such as learning consultations offered by the student services.
