On 15 March 2018 the LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards brought students from 23 universities together with recruiters, partners and trainees from 11 sponsor law firms and one Inn of Court for an evening of celebrating achievement and networking at Painters’ Hall in London. The annual 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 more than 2,240 individual students and 48 student law society committees.
Bethany Wren, communications and events coordinator at LawCareers.Net, commented: “Student law societies are hubs of information and empowerment in which members can develop their knowledge and skills, and support one another to make real 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.”
The winners were:
Congratulations to our winners and all nominated societies.
LCN will be formally launching next year’s awards at the annual LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Networking Event, which will be held before the start of the coming autumn term. It’s a great way for fellow law society presidents to meet each other and find out about the awards, so stay tuned for details.
