Law Students Say :

TROUBLED by the unreasonable policy of categorizing our HECS contribution in Band 3 in the same group as medical students but wherein we have to contribute to 85 \% of the cost; and

ANGERED being singled out and that no alternatives were provided for us ;

WE, the undersigned:

CALL on the Australian government and in particular the Prime Minister and/or Mr Mark Latham to:

1) Consider reducing our HECS from Band 3 to Band 2 for law students.
2) Incorporating Practical Legal Training into our LLB course and payable by HECS.
3) Instead of HECS repayment from our future income, we submit as an alternative by committing to pro-bono work up to the value equivalent to our said debt. This is preferable as realistically it provides positive contribution to society in relation to our proposed profession.
