LawCareers.Net celebrates work of students at third annual Student Law Society Awards

On 16 March 2017 the LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards, sponsored by DWF LLP, brought together students, recruiters, partners and trainees with the LawCareers.Net team for a networking-rich presentation 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 over 40 student law society committees, alongside over 1,700 votes from their members.

Bethany Wren, digital communications 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.”
