LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards

The 2017 LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards will take place in March 2017 in London. The aim of the awards is simple: to highlight and celebrate the great work that societies at campuses up and down the country do, and the fantastic events and opportunities they create for their members. We will be surveying societies and their memberships from October 2016.

A student law society can be all things to all people; it is a social hub, a place where members can improve and share their knowledge and understanding of the law and legal industry, a place to develop skills, to contribute to society, to argue and debate, and to have fun. And, of course, developing employability is a vital part of the brief of student law societies. They are hubs for empowering members to appreciate what sorts of career they can have, work out what they need to do to realise their ambitions and take practical steps to do so. LawCareers.Net is particularly keen to support this aspect of societies’ activities.
