The Law Students’ Society (LSS)

The LSS is the umbrella student organization serving the students of UNB Law. All law students are members of the Law Students' Society and there is a mandatory membership fee of $60.

The LSS represents students in a number of respects and the fees provide funding for all student committees and organizations, such as:

  • Aboriginal Law Society
  • Orientation Committee
  • Black Law Students’ Association
  • International Law Society
  • OUTLaw
  • Intramural Sports Committee
  • Charity Auction Committee
  • Social Committee
  • Grad Committee
  • Yearbook
  • Women and the Law

The LSS executive consists of a president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary and first-year representative. Elections for all positions are held in the spring of each year, with the exception of the First Year Representative who is elected in the fall. The LSS executive administers the budget, serves as liaison between faculty and students, coordinates student events with committee and society chairs, and generally deals with student business and issues as they arise. Any questions, concerns or criticisms please contact

Connect with the LSS via Facebook or Twitter

Pro Bono Students Canada

Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) is a national organization founded in 1996 at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law. Since then, PBSC has established local branches in all 20 Canadian law schools, including the local branch that has served the Fredericton community for more than two decades. Over the years, students from UNB Law have completed a wide array of projects with local public interest and non-profit organizations, tribunals, government bodies and lawyers doing pro bono work. The commitment and hard work of our students have made PBSC a key component of the local public interest and legal communities.

Contact UNB's PBSC Program Coordinator to get involved with the local chapter. For more information, visit the PBSC UNB website or connect on Facebook or Twitter.

PBSC UNB is grateful for the support received from the New Brunswick Law Foundation and UNB Law School. PBSC is a national organization that also receives generous funding from the Law Foundation of Ontario, McCarthy Tétrault LLP and Westlaw Canada.
