Students (2014)

We encourage students to join the Society and participate in our community.  

The Industrial Relations Society of Victoria has a special student membership rate available for those eligible and offers student rates to most events.  Please see our membership form for more details.  

Annually, the Society holds a Student Essay Competition (open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students).  The winners of the Competition are presented with a cash prize and also a years membership to the Society.

The Industrial Relations Society of Victoria also holds an annual event that focuses on raising awareness about career paths in industrial relations and related fields.  

On Wednesday September 18, at the Fair Work Commission this year’s speakers are:

  • Commissioner Leigh Johns – Fair Work Commission
  • Dr rosemary Kelly - Executive Officer, Medical Scientists Asssociation
  • Amber Millhouse – Senior Associate, Seyfarth Shaw

Each year a student representative is nominated and elected to the Executive Committee.  The Society is always interested in new ways to encourage and foster student involvement.

If you are a student and are interested in becoming involved with the IRSV, please contact the Secretariat on (03) 9614 7545 or

We look forward to hearing from you!
