Life at Laws

Law Society

The UCL Law Society plays a vital role within UCL Laws, and is run by a committee elected annually by the student body. This society supplements academic activities by organising social and sporting functions during the year and also provides a programme of talks by eminent academics and practitioners from outside UCL. It is in conjunction with the Law Society that the faculty successfully maintains its strong links with the legal profession in London and elsewhere, and a thriving careers programme.

Members of the Law Society assist in many ways in the extracurricular life of UCL Laws. They organise moots – simulated judicial proceedings – in which all students are encouraged to participate and which are usually judged by eminent members of the legal profession. They also help to organise a client-interviewing competition and a negotiation competition. Additionally, the society arranges a substantial programme of careers talks and events.

Every effort is made at UCL to ensure that a friendly community exists. Within the faculty building, there is a pleasant common room and a number of social and intellectual events are arranged throughout term for students.

Last, but definitely not least, the Law Society exists to represent undergraduate student interests in UCL Laws. The society’s elected officers and student representatives sit on the faculty’s Staff/Student Consultative Committee and on the Faculty Board – the governing body of UCL Laws. Student representatives liaise constantly with Faculty Officers over all matters of student concern.
