The Law society provides a range of Academic support throughout the year for students, as well as opportunities to engage with relevant legal studies and interests outside of the lecture theatre. We work closely with lecturers to ensure that the material and workshops we provide, coincide with your studies.
You can find out about academic events, information and opportunities through the Law Society Facebook page, from which you can receive notifications, the weekly newsletter, as well as through the calendar which will be featured on our website.
Academic socials are open to members of the Law Society and provide an informal space for students to get advice and tips from second and third year students concerning things like course content, how to make case notes effectively and how to tackle coursework. Furthermore, we engage closely with professors to provide information which will be relevant to your studies. This is one not to miss!
The annual Academic Debate is a competition run by the Law Society and this coming year, in conjunction with the Debating Society. This is a great platform to not only to engage practically with your legal studies, but to develop the essential skills of advocacy and public speaking. In addition, the debates provide a great way to learn and come to terms to what is expected from you when addressing issues in examinations as the questions will be formulated with tutors.
The Human Rights Film Series
The film series is for all, not just law students, who are concerned with Human Rights issues across the globe. Each month, there will be a viewing of films as well as ample opportunities to engage and respond with the issues raised. This is brought to you in collaboration with UNICEF on Campus.
