Edinburgh Law School offers all its first year LLB students a place on its Law Peer Assisted Learning Scheme (LawPALS).

All first years are assigned to a group and attend weekly sessions led by 3rd or 4th year Student Leaders who have been trained in facilitation. These sessions are designed to support students in both academic and social transition into Edinburgh Law School.

Sessions are flexible to allow Student Leaders to respond to student questions and we are proud to offer this 'safe space' to ask 'silly' questions. There are separate groups for our Graduate (2-year) students and these are led by second year Graduate LLB students.

A postgraduate LawPALS Coordinator looks after the programme day-to-day, reporting to the Director of the Student Experience. Sessions take place weekly during the first semester. Further information is available at the LawPALS website.

There is a handy 'Prezi' presentation which explains more about LawPALS and how it operates. You can view it here
