Every year, SOULS produces four student magazines: The Welcome to Law School Guide, Accession Volumes 1 and 2, and Estoppel.

Each magazine seeks to keep students up-to-date on all SOULS matters, as well as providing extra interesting content such as articles from staff and students.

Please feel free to follow the links to each magazine below –  happy reading!

Welcome to Law School Magazine.

Many of us arrive back at uni after the summer holidays completely unprepared to get back into study. Thankfully, SOULS has you covered, with a magazine designed to get you back up to speed with what’s going on around Otago Law School and some top tips on how to hit the ground running!


Accession is about keeping you informed about the goings-on of law students throughout the year. With a new edition released each semester, Accession is sure to keep you entertained. Autumn Accession 2021 is the Recruitment Issue, with heaps of tips for how to go about the next stages of your law lives. Winter Accession is all about Clown School, and the clownery involved in it all


Estoppel is the equivalent of the Otago Law Student’s Yearbook. It combines the final reports of the year with hilarious articles and some fantastic photos from our favourite events. With 2021 being an *odd* year, there is no finalist photo unfortunately but hopefully you enjoy the year round up
