The Australian Law Students' Association (ALSA) annual conference will this year be hosted by the University of New South Wales in Sydney from 5 to 8 July.

The ALSA 2011 Conference is the largest law student event in Australia and one of the largest student-run annual conferences, attracting over 600 delegates from across Australia, New Zealand, England and Asia.

This year's conference will host six national legal competitions, including the Red Cross International Humanitarian Law Moot, the Sir Laurence Street Negotiation Competition, the National Moot Competition, and the national finals for Client Interviewing, Paper Presentation, and Witness Examination.

The grand finals for each competition will be held inside the historic Banco Court of Sydney.

The conference will also boast an equity breakfast and several speakers' forums, attracting the best speakers in their fields. Diverse topics of interest to law students and the wider community will be covered, such as "Regulating the Internet: A Legal Catastrophe?", "Homosexuality and the Changing Law", and "Alternative Careers: What can your law degree do for you?".

Socialising in also on the agenda, with an opening and closing gala to be hosted at marquee Sydney venues, including the Hilton Hotel and Doltone House. Delegates will also be able to enjoy Sydney and its surrounds, with day trips and evening events, such as a cocktail evening, bar crawl and theme party, all on offer. Delegates will stay at the Sebel Surry Hills for the duration of the conference.

ALSA will also hold the inaugural ALSA Careers Fair, packaged with a brunch for students to mingle with employers in an informal setting. In addition, delegates can attend mental health & wellbeing and careers workshops.

"The ALSA 2011 Conference is looking to be a memorable event that will allow delegates to get as much as possible out of their law degree, and I encourage all Australian law students to consider attending," said ALSA president Matthew Floro.
