The International Students Orientation Program consists of a series of visits to various key sites and landmarks in Canberra and on-campus sessions to introduce international and inbound exchange students to Australian institutions that are relevant to the study of law.

The program runs throughout Semester One, 2023, and a bus will be provided to transport registered participants to off-campus locations, except to the ACT Supreme Court where we will walk across campus.
