A division of the Legal Studies Society is founding the Legal Studies Undergraduate Journal at the University of Waterloo. The purpose of the Journal is to showcase legal studies undergraduate work in an open source forum. This will enable the recognition of exemplary student work and promote the interdisciplinary legal studies program at the University of Waterloo. The second online issue will be published in 2017.
We are seeking to establish an Editorial Board comprised of senior undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty members. Members of the Board would review no more than 2-3 manuscripts per year, receive guidance on the publishing process, and gain volunteer experience.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Editorial Board, please submit your resume, a statement outlining your interest in serving on the Board, an outline of the skills that you would bring as a member, and what subject areas are of interest to you. At this time, we ask that only third and fourth year students apply. Please send your expression of interest and requested information to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 22nd.
As you can see, we’ve made a few changes to the design of the website. But don’t worry! We still have all the awesome information from years previous.
For those that are new to the Legal Studies Society, this website (along with our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) will be your source for information pertaining to all things LSS!
We are partnering up with Sociology Society to host a Student and Professor Mixer! Professors, TAs, and your fellow students will be there so this is a great opportunity to network and get to know your faculty better.

The Legal Studies Society is partnering with Quantum Test Prep to host our annual Mock LSAT. This is a great opportunity to simulate what an LSAT will look like.
– The test will be *self marked*, in the sense that Quantum Test Prep will be providing a conversion chart as well as a score calculation formula. They will explain this on the day of the test, and this is very useful so that going into LSAT studying, you will know how to do this.
– Registration is required. The event is FREE, but please email legalstudiessociety@gmail.
Hope to see you there!
