Għaqa Studenti tal-Ligi (Għ.S.L) for the first time since its inception, organised a weekend academic seminar dedicated to First Year Law Students. The seminar, titled 'Lawyered up' took place between the 8-10 November at the University of Malta Residence in Lija. The main aim of this event was to introduce Fresher Law students to University life and most of all to taste what the law course has to offer.

The seminar consisted of a number of sessions such as Meet the Administration held by Profs Aquilina (Dean of the Faculty of Laws), who delved into the academic opportunities for Law students at the University of Malta, especially in relation to the Masters Programme and PhD programme which the Faculty of Laws has to offer.

Another session was Meet the Professional, this brought together professionals from the Legal and Judicial Field, in fact the guests for the session were Notary Dr. James Grech, Dr. Reuben Balzan (President of the Chamber of Advocates), Justice Emeritus Giovanni Bonello and Dr. Peter Grech (Advocate General).

In addition, Meet the lecturers was a session  dedicated for the purpose of helping students get to know some of the lecturers and learn how to deal with the expectancy of their studies. This session was carried out by Dr. David Zammit Head of Civil Law Department and Dr. Austin Bencini Head of Public Law Department; A Moot court session was also organised during the Seminar by the Young Entrepreneurs and Leaders (YEL)

The recently established Junior Chamber of Advocates, a branch of the Malta Chamber of Advocates, and Faculty Board Student Representatives, also took part in the seminar.

Lawyered Up came to a close on 10 November during which Gh.S.L carried out the closing session, purposefully intended to gather feedback from the students attending.
