Law, life and wellbeing

The School of Law is committed to promoting the wellbeing of our student community, and equipping students with the self-management skills they need to thrive whilst in law school and beyond into their professional lives.

Studying law can be challenging and involve hard work, so maintaining your wellbeing throughout your journey is fundamental. Don’t use up all your energy struggling through, or covering up your distress if you feel you are not coping. Use the resources in this site to proactively practise self-care, connect with friends and access professional support if you need to. 

If you have any additional questions or don't know where to start be sure to email your Student Support and Wellness Officer, Dony, at any time via
