SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUITY

Social Justice refers to the fundamental belief of a fair and just distribution of wealth, opportunities and privileges within society. The law has a critical role in addressing these inequalities and in creating meaningful change. The portfolio integrates these values into its events and publications.

The portfolio aims to engage, educate and inspire Deakin Law students about social justice topics at both an international and domestic scale. The portfolio works to promote Deakin law students’ diversity and help shape a compassionate and socially-conscious cohort of graduates who can lead inspirational legal careers. In 2021, the portfolio focuses on career opportunities that sit at the intersection of social justice and the law, and inform students of the many pathways they may choose to pursue as they begin their professional careers. Through this, we hope to highlight how students can engage with their passions for social justice and equity during and beyond university.
