UCL Law Society
The Student Law Society plays a vital role within the faculty, and is run
by a committee elected annually by the student body. This society supplements
academic activities by organising social and sporting functions during
year. It also provides a programme of talks by eminent academics and practitioners
from outside UCL. It is in conjunction with the society that the faculty
successfully maintains its strong links with the legal profession in London
and elsewhere, and a thriving careers programme.
Members of the society assist in many ways in the extracurricular life of
the faculty. They organise moots - simulated judicial proceedings - in which
all students are encouraged to participate and which are usually judged by
eminent members of the legal profession. They also help to organise a client-interviewing
competition and a negotiation competition. Additionally, the society organises
a substantial programme of careers talks and events.
Every effort is made at UCL to ensure that a friendly community exists. Within
the faculty building there is a pleasant common room and a number of social
and intellectual events are arranged throughout term for students.
Last, but definitely not least, the Law Society exists to represent student
interests in the faculty. The society's elected officers and student representatives
sit on the faculty's Staff/Student Consultative Committee and on the Faculty
Board - the governing body of the Faculty of Laws. Student representatives
liaise constantly with faculty officers over all matters of student concern.
