The Law Societies at UCL Laws are run by students, for students, with the help and support of the Faculty.
Our unrivalled and dedicated Societies stand us apart from other institutions. Each Society plays a pivotal role within UCL Laws and delivers an outstanding programme of activities and events each term, including talks by eminent academics and practitioners from outside UCL.
Competitions and activities
The Law Societies co-ordinate pro bono opportunities, enabling you to experience a different side of law and give back to the local community. You can also take part in mooting, negotiation, client interviewing and debating competitions to help build your skills and legal knowledge.
The Law Societies also host a range of careers events, some in conjunction with the Faculty - including workshops, panel discussions and talks. The Society maintains strong links with law firms in London and elsewhere to help all students at UCL Laws make the most out of their time with us. You can also attend professional networking events, including the prestigious annual Barristers’ Cocktail Party.
There are plenty of social and networking opportunities to get involved in as well, including sports events, balls, and end of term parties. New and returning students are welcomed at Freshers' Week, with various events for you to meet new people and build friendships.
The Law Societies’ presidents and officers are elected each year by students, and the Societies’ activities are governed by their constitutions.
Both Law Societies exist to represent students’ interests at UCL Laws. The Societies’ presidents sit on the Faculty’s Staff-Student Consultative Committee and on the Faculty Board, the governing body of UCL Laws. Student representatives liaise regularly with Faculty Officers over all matters affecting students.
