FLINN OLARENSHAW - DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION

Welcome! My name is Flinn Olarenshaw, and I am currently in my second year of the Bachelor Laws (Honours)/Commerce double degree. As Director of Education, alongside the education team, I help organise events and initiatives such as Justice Speech, the ‘Get to Know Them’ series, the Buddy/Mentoring initiative, LAW 101’s, LSA Q&A tutorial recap/study sessions and more. Additionally, we look to provide resources that aim to academically support students and highlight the many opportunities available to them. One thing I wished I knew in my first year is that you really need to learn how to manage your time. Between the prescribed readings, lectures, due dates, and life outside university, it becomes easy to fall behind and feel overwhelmed. Having planners and checklists did help me manage a balance between university, work, and social life. That being said, one piece of advice I would strongly recommend is to get involved and not be afraid to try the opportunities on offer! Come along to LSA events, compete in competitions and more. It really is a fantastic way to enhance your Law School experience.
