International Student Representative 

Nirmal is the International Student Representative for TULS - The Tasmania University Law Society...

The University of Tasmania and specifically, the Law Faculty has welcomed international students from all parts of the world since the early 1900s. As the International Students' Officer of the Tasmanian University Law Society, it is my role to bridge the gap between international students and the local community.

My experience as an international student has been phenomenal. Though hitting the books hard is an important facet of law school, I strongly believe in engaging in the other social and extra-curricular activities organised by the Faculty that have attributed to my holistic learning experience. Likewise, I urge every international student to do the same to make the most out of your law degree.

I would also like to take the opportunity to give you a brief overview of Tasmanian University Law Society (TULS).The Society is run by law students themselves and plays a big role in providing students with this holistic experience at the Law Faculty. They have consistently provided students with opportunities to participate in activities from social events to educational seminars and competitions, and even excursions to explore Tasmania.

Last but not least, the responsibility of the International Students' Officer is to cater to the needs of international students. So, as the International Students' Officer of 2015, I will be happy to be at your service and your first point of contact should any concerns arise during your time here.

I look forward to meeting each and every one of you!
