Law societies, law firm representatives and the LawCareers.Net team gathered last night on Wednesday 29 March 2023 to celebrate the ninth annual LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards.
The purpose of the awards is to highlight the hard work of student law societies across the UK through a range of different award categories – from ‘Best society for first-year students’, to ‘Best society for mooting’.
Nominees across the 13 award categories were praised for their hard work in engaging, encouraging and proving opportunities for their members in a difficult year that’s seen economic and educational turbulence.
In 2022 LCN introduced the ‘Best society for welfare’ award, which celebrates the societies that showcased a commitment to looking after their members’ wellbeing and mental health, as well as offering career information and opportunities. The award continues to be a welcome addition for societies and firms alike.
Nominated societies were selected from the submissions of committees themselves, alongside over 2,000 votes from their members.
Bethany Wren, head of content and events at LawCareers.Net, commented: “The LawCareers.Net team always thoroughly enjoys judging the Student Law Society Awards, and this year we were very impressed by the hard work and dedication of law societies at universities all over the country.
“From holding brilliant careers and social events, to supporting members at different stages of their legal career paths, to understanding the importance of diversity and wellbeing within the society, the nominated societies this year proved once again that student law societies are fantastic communities and legal hubs that really care about setting aspiring lawyers up for the future.”
The winners are:
Congratulations to all winners and nominated societies.
