Most students would agree that study is arduous, but never more so than at exam time. The UNSW Law Society has come to the rescue this semester, bringing stress levels down with a range of health and wellness activities.
The Happy Hour Project is a new initiative from the Law Society which aims to keep students motivated, resilient and most importantly, happy. So far, students have enjoyed a talk on clerkships and exam preparation, group study sessions, student-run course reviews and even a visit from therapy dogs.
Cecily Zhu, one of the coordinators of The Happy Hour Project, says the idea came from a desire to create a dialogue about the risks of anxiety and depression within law school and the legal profession.
