Overview 

The Law Students’ Society (LSS) is a vital forum for discussion. Its representatives serve on University Governance Boards as well as on the executive of the Society of Graduate and Professional Students (SGPS). Representatives also sit on important committees, such as Faculty Board, setting policy and rendering decisions that have a significant impact on the life of Queen’s Law.

The LSS also supports a wide range of student clubs, social functions and athletic activities to provide the student body with rewarding opportunities for student involvement.

All Queen’s Law students are members of the LSS. Each year (1L, 2L, and 3L) is represented on the LSS, which is overseen by the LSS Core.

About Outlines

What is an outline?

An outline is a tool to help you study for an exam. Generally speaking, an outline is not just a set of case briefs, but rather a synthesis of the information that you have learned in a course throughout the semester.

DISCLAIMER: There is no perfect outline (except the one you make for yourself)

The Law Students’ Society is NOT responsible for the contents of any posted outlines. This service is merely a convenience and the information contained has not be reviewed for its content or trustworthiness.
