Chapter update 26 August 2021
Continuing lockdowns in the Sydney metropolitan area have thwarted the Chapter’s plans to hold another seminar in September. Instead, we have decided to have an essay competition inviting NSW and ACT residents to submit an education/law essay of their choice. The best three submissions will win monetary prizes which will be announced at our AGM on December 9. See details about the AGM below.
ANZELA NSW Essay Competition 2021
Are you a lawyer, educator, law student, education student, or recent graduate, with something to say about a legal issue affecting education? If yes, the ANZELA NSW Chapter invites you to participate in its 2021 Essay Competition. Prizes include a First Prize of $3000, a year’s ANZELA membership, and the opportunity to have your essay included in a future edition of the International Journal of Law and Education (IJLE).

Chapter Update 25 May 2021
Seminar Review: Responding to Damaging Social Media Behaviours
On Tuesday 18 May, the NSW Chapter held its first face to face education/law seminar since the shutdown in March 2020.
A panel of legal and educational experts—Julie Ross, Principal Kogarah High School; Margaret Baker, Legal Services Department of Education and Constable Matthew Aylward, Crime Prevention Officer—deftly and sensitively unpacked a multi-layered scenario as they responded to the unfolding issues.
Michael Waterhouse facilitated as the panel gave thoughtful and precise practical advice and in-depth responses to questions from the floor. All attendees left the seminar well informed on best practice for management of social media issues.
The Committee wishes to thank everyone who contributed to ensuring the seminar occurred.

Save the Date
Our next seminar is likely to deal with the topic of ‘Consent’. Currently, it is planned to take place later in the year; teachers, administrators, students and lawyers at all levels are encouraged to attend.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to engage with our education and law community and gain valuable insights into this important issue.
