In academic affairs, the LSC's traditional role has been to provide an interface between students and staff. Council members sit on Faculty committees for academic planning, the Library and Moots. Future Faculty policy is often discussed first in these committees. The LSC sees full and informed participation in committees as a challenge.

Amidst the crackling academic tension throughout the year, social events provide the opportunity for students to interact on a friendly and relaxed level. The LSC aims to host functions that will cater for the diverse student population.

In the University as a whole, the LSC has two seats on Student Parliament (SP), to participate in the student governance of the University. All students can attend SP meetings with observer status.

In close collaboration, the LSC and the Black Law Students Forum (BLSF) focus on transforming and invigorating the institutional culture of the Faculty, embracing the Faculty's racial and cultural diversity.
