My name is Alastair and I have been elected to take over from Daniel as President of the Law Society for the academic year 2017/18.
The Law Society exists to support all those at Lancaster who are studying law, as well as all those looking to pursue a legal career to achieve this goal. It is no longer enough for students to simply achieve a good 2:1 from a “Top Ten University” when applying for any kind of job. You must have something to differentiate yourself and actively participating in the activities the society has to offer is an ideal way to set one apart, from participating in the competitions to attending the annual Careers Dinner – Lancaster University Law Society has something to offer each and every member.
The executive team is working extremely hard to ensure that this year is even bigger than ever, looking to build on previous nominations and awards received at the LawCareers.Net ceremony, including last year’s nomination for “Best Social Media”. The team are also working to increase the range of extra-curricular opportunities offered as well as growing the range of partnerships the society has to offer.
Finally, I wish all members every success in their studies and hope you will make the most of the opportunities we have to offer you. If you have any queries at any point throughout the year then please do not hesitate to contact myself or any other member of the executive team. You can find our contact details in the Contact Us section, alternatively drop by the society office during my office hours.
