About the Association.


The sole representative body for law students at the University of South Australia.

USALSA is the sole representative body for law students at the University of South Australia.

We work for the benefit of the student body by providing social events and networking opportunities, careers fairs and seminars, and legal advocacy competitions to assist students’ practical experience and skill development.

Since 2008, USALSA has seen a history of students whose academic qualifications have provided them with quality professional experiences that advantage them against other law graduates across the State.

The University of South Australia was ranked number one in South Australia for undergraduate satisfaction in the Graduate Outcomes Survey 2016-18. Of the subject areas featured, Law at UniSA was one of the greatest contributors. UniSA also topped the State for employer satisfaction; almost 86 per cent of employers polled in the 2018 Employer Satisfaction Survey were satisfied overall with the UniSA graduates they had employed.

Given the size of the UniSA Law School, USALSA achieves a direct engagement with its student body to promote a stable fixture that offers diverse learning opportunities employers will look for. We are excited to coordinate new prospects for the 2020 Academic Year with our sponsors. USALSA is a student-focussed not-for-profit organisation that relies on its generous sponsorship partners.

In 2020, the University of South Australia implemented its strategic action plan, Enterprise25. One of its effects was to introduce a program-focused organisational structure, which saw the School of Law form a part of the UniSA Justice and Society academic unit. This organisational restructure brought with it stronger synergies between Law, Psychology, Social Work, Human Services and Social Sciences.

Together with UniSA and our generous sponsors, USALSA is excited to bring new projects and student development options to its law students and graduates, in conjunction with the Enterprise25 action plan.
