La Trobe Law Students’ Association

LSA Executive 2020/21


Brandon Draper


As the president of the LSA my role is to represent the committee and all LSA members. This involves ensuring all the directors are completing their relevant tasks to ensure we have the best events and information available to you. I also liaise with the law school in order to ensure we have a strong relationship and support from them.

Paris Nesire

Vice President

My main role is to assist the President in the day to day running of the Committee. My role is primarily from within the committee and looking after all committee members and ensuring that meetings and the administrative side of the role is performed well. I am usually the person the committee comes to if they are in need of any help.

Alex Hughan


I am the Treasurer and am in charge of all things financial, which is mostly telling people they’re not allowed to spend as much money as they want to. I am also responsible for ensuring our financial and legal obligations are carried out, it helps to be on top of these as breaking the law probably isn’t a good look for law students.


Leyan Elsaadi

Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

I am the Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. I work with the equity officers to promote inclusion and diversity within the LSA and beyond. We aim to recognise, honour and celebrate the various significant historical and cultural events around the year. We also ensure that inclusive measures are implemented across all LSA events.

Daniel Reljic

Director of Sponsorship

My primary role as Director of Sponsorship is to look after the LSA’s relationship with our many sponsors, in order to ensure that many of our events can run and to allow students to meet with professionals from many different firms and organisations. This involves meeting with firms over the summer to negotiate the best sponsorship agreement we can.

Faviola Martinez Figueroa

Director of Juris Doctor

I am a penultimate JD student studying at the city campus. I have a great passion for property law and commercial law and look forward to working in those practice areas. Having worked at La Trobe for 6 years, I am invested in helping students with their degree – which is the main reason I decided to join LSA as Director of the JD!

Elly-May Dreier

Director of Marketing

I am the Director of Marketing for La Trobe’s Law Students’ Association. We aim to foster communication between our students, academic staff and the wider legal community. The LSA values keeping our student body informed of the multitude of events, competitions and other activities that occur throughout the year.

Sam Chung

Director of Activities

I am the Director of Activities. My role is one of the most fulfilling and entertaining roles of the LSA – I create the social events for the LSA calendar that allow law students to have an outlet from their super busy lives in law school! Myself and my officers create events for law students that are unique, fun and enjoyable for all students.

Ingrid Tam
