LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards

The 2018 LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards, sponsored by DWF LLP, will take place in March 2018 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 are currently surveying societies and their memberships.

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.

How to take part in the 2018 awards

Applications are now open for the 2018 Student Law Society Awards!

If you are involved with running the student society at your university please get in touch with Bethany Wren at Bethany will inform you how to make a submission for the awards. We would like as many law societies as possible to take part.

If you are a member of the student law society at your university, we invite you to take our survey and tell us what you think about your society. Every student law society member who submits a survey will be entered into a prize draw to win a £100 Amazon voucher.
