Law, life and wellbeing

Studying law can be challenging, so prioritising your wellbeing throughout your journey is fundamental.

The UQ Law School, through its Law life & wellbeing co-curricular program, is proactively committed to supporting our student community, and equipping you with the tools you need in order to thrive.

Law life & wellbeing is the gateway to an enriched student experience at UQ Law, often responsible for connecting students, hosting events and amplifying existing programs and services for you to access throughout your studies. Whether you’re looking for opportunities to get to know your peers, additional study support, or an avenue to improve your mental health and wellbeing, we encourage you to reach out to your Law life & wellbeing team.

Physical health and wellbeing

Looking after your body helps to look after your mind and emotions too. We know not everyone loves the gym, so UQ has social sport, competitive teams, nutritional assistance and fun workshops to help you relax and be social. Put the book down and enjoy the activities on and off campus that uni life brings.
