LCN Student Law Society nominees announced; more submissions received than ever before

LawCareers.Net is delighted to announce the nominees for the third annual Student Law Society Awards, sponsored by DWF LLP. There was an overwhelming response from students, with more than 1,700 individual submissions and 41 committee submissions received.

The event will take place in the glamorous surroundings of Painters’ Hall in London on Thursday 16 March 2017. It will bring together representatives from the prestigious sponsor law firms and the nominated student law societies, offering all the opportunity to engage in meaningful networking.

The 11 individual award categories are intended to showcase the hard work of student law society members in providing their peers with the best socials, careers events, and pro bono and mooting activities. This year, we have introduced a new award that is designed to recognise those societies that are committed to the ideals of diversity.
