My name is James and I have been elected to take over from Rob as the President of the Law Society for this upcoming academic year.
The Law Society exists to inform students as to their intended legal career, but also, and perhaps more importantly, to help students in achieving their career aspirations. Prospective employers are looking for more than a 2:1 from ‘Top Ten University’ and active participation with the Law Society by virtue of our extra-curricular activities offers exactly that. Our focus on legal careers notwithstanding, these activities will differentiate you from the crowd no matter what career you may choose to pursue.
Our executive team is working incredibly hard to ensure that 2015-2016 is the Society’s biggest year to date. Building on the successes of last year, where the Law Society was awarded ‘Best Student Engagement’ by LawCareers.Net. The various extra-curricular activities on offer this year will range from inter university competitions to local pro-bono work, all of which will be posted on this website.
Finally, I would like to wish you all well in your studies and hope that you will make the most of the opportunities available to you. If you have any queries at all then please do not hesitate in contacting either myself or any other members of the executive. You will be able to find all of our contract details here.
