The UNSW Criminology Society (UNSW CrimSoc) is the social, professional development and student affairs organisation of all UNSW Criminology students. CrimSoc seeks to enrich our students’ academic experience and raise awareness on contemporary topical criminological debates both nationwide and global.
We achieve this through:
organising networking sessions to allow current students to connect and draw from the experiences of graduates and professionals to support and further their career aspirations
planning social events, including movie and trivia nights, cocktail parties and afternoon teas. These allow students to make new friends among their cohort and supports our students’ wellbeing while also encouraging them to make meaningful connections.
Currently, CrimSoc is run by a team of executives overseeing our various departments and supported by a team of dedicated subcommittee members and general assistants.

Founded more than 30 years ago, this UNSW-based non-profit organisation helps improves access to justice by engaging, educating and empowering members of the community, particularly the vulnerable and disadvantaged. Free-of-charge workshops and seminars, hosted by trained UNSW Law & Justice students, educate program participants on their legal rights in meaningful, practical ways.
UNSW Undergraduate and Juris Doctor students from all stages of their degree are encouraged to become presenters with SLEG. It's a great way to connect with other UNSW Law & Justice students, finesse your skills in public speaking and teamwork in a way that sees your degree working in practice, and to aid both local and regional communities with your legal knowledge.
Schools, community centres and other interested groups are invited to participate in this program. We present free-of-charge and are happy to tailor our content to your specific needs, time frame and year group. If you'd like more information on the program, please don't hesitate to contact us.
