Wellbeing in the Law Week - Mon 8 to Fri 12 May

The ANU College of Law is committed to health and wellbeing in the law, for all our students and academic and professional staff. This is the inaugural Wellbeing in the Law Week, presented by the ANU College of Law Wellbeing Initiative and the ANU Law Students' Society.

We have prepared a full program of activitities, events and seminars for the whole week, and everyone is warmly welcomed and encouraged to participate in everything in the schedule.

Events this week include:

Lessons from the Bourke Street Mall tragedy

The 'Photoshop laws' and women's body image

Images of extraordinarily thin women are everywhere. When women see these images, their self-esteem may consequently lower, and potentially develop into an eating disorder. Governments internationally have taken action as a result. In particular, the Israeli and French Governments passed ‘Photoshop Laws’. The ‘Photoshop Laws’ require models to have a minimum BMI in order to work, and if an image is photoshopped, it must state that it has been edited.
