Hard work of students recognised at LawCareers.Net fifth annual Student Law Society Awards

updated on 15 March 2019

On Thursday 14 March 2019, the annual LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards, sponsored by Norton Rose Fulbright, brought together students, recruiters, partners and trainees with the LawCareers.Net team at Painters’ Hall in London.

The event recognises the dedication of student committees across the country offering their members innovative careers events and comprehensive pro bono and mooting activities, alongside more traditional opportunities to socialise with their peers. Nominated societies were selected from the submissions of student law society committees, alongside over 2,700 votes from their members.

Bethany Wren, content and events coordinator at LawCareers.Net, commented: “Student law societies are really crucial places for members to develop their knowledge and skills, and support one another to make progress on their legal career paths. In each and every category this year we were blown away by the wealth of passion, ingenuity and focus that goes into what the nominated societies do.”
