Melbourne Law School’s EAGLE Program is dedicated to helping first year JD students develop their legal academic skills and successfully transition into law school. (EAGLE stands for Early Academic Guidance for Legal Education.)

In a small group setting, a later-year JD student (the ‘facilitator’) will take students through important academic skills, including:

  • Reading and note-taking
  • How to write answers to hypotheticals/problem questions
  • How to construct a legal memo
  • How to prepare and practice for oral presentations
  • How to make notes for exams
  • How to prepare for exams

The EAGLE sessions are also a safe and supportive environment for students to ask any questions they may have about law life, including:

  • Time management strategies
  • How to access MLS’ wellbeing resources
  • International and internship opportunities
  • How to find law-related work and volunteering opportunities
  • How to become involved in extracurricular activities at MLS

EAGLE sessions run for one hour over nine weeks of Semester 1, and all first year JD students are automatically enrolled into an EAGLE group. Just check you timetable!
