LawCareers.Net is delighted to announce the launch of the 2024 Student Law Society Awards

LawCareers.Net’s Student Law Society Awards celebrate the hard work of student-led societies across the country who support their members through activities that include: 

  • careers and social events; 
  • pro bono and mooting activities; 
  • initiatives for aspiring barristers, first-year and non-law students; 
  • highlighting and improving diversity within the legal profession; and 
  • commercial awareness opportunities. 

The Student Law Society Awards are based on a submission from each student law society and the results of a survey of student law society members. The submissions are judged by the LawCareers.Net team and nominees will be announced in February 2024. 

There are 13 awards up for grabs and the winners will be presented at a ceremony in March 2024. The awards are as follows:

  • Best at student engagement – sponsored by Dechert LLP
  • Best careers event – sponsored by Baker McKenzie
  • Best social event
  • Best society for non-law students – sponsored by Shoosmiths
  • Best society for first-year students
  • Best society for commercial awareness
  • Best society for aspiring barristers
  • Best society for mooting
  • Best society for pro bono
  • Best society for welfare
  • Most committed to increasing diversity
  • Best law society president
  • Best law society overall – sponsored by Burges Salmon LLP

BARBRI is the overall sponsor of the Student Law Society Awards 2024.

You can vote for your society by taking the online survey and telling us how your society supports you in the above areas. 

Society presidents and committees wishing to be considered for the prestigious awards should first make a submission detailing its events and activities. We want to get a feel for what the society does and highlight some of your proudest achievements as a group.

The deadline for submissions of both surveys is Friday 19 January 2024. For more information, visit the Student Law Society Awards microsite which features last year’s winning societies. 

If you have any questions about submitting, please email Niamh Gray at [email protected].

Good luck to all the societies involved!
