Our community is the very heart of UELS and what makes us successful. We offer regular social events for our members to allow them to interact with like-minded people and make friends for life. The highlights of our social calendar include our biannual Winter Ball and Spring Gala!
Employability is all about providing our members with a broad range of career opportunities, aimed at all students, both law and non-law. We will be striving to increase opportunities for our members network and and get close and personal with professionals from top law firms, chambers and organisations.
Our dedicated Pro Bono Officers have been working hard to establish three main projects for this academic year. These include:
Commentary - a continuing project which aims to produce articles raising awareness about Pro Bono.
Fundraising - entailing groups of student volunteers raising money for carefully chosen charities.
Legal Education - involving working with the Maynard School with the aim of raising awareness of basic legal issues and topics.
We have a range of competitions, including mooting, mock trials and negotiation competitions, including newcomer variants for those who have never participated before. The UELS mock trial allows aspiring barristers to improve upon their courtroom etiquette and advocacy skills. Similarly our Pro Bono and mooting activities ensure that we are giving students the opportunity to develop transferable skills for their career in accessible and inclusive ways.
This year, you can expect to see UELS hosting events that will aid with studying, managing workloads whilst ensuring you have time for your wellbeing, preparing you for the different formats of exams/coursework as well as enriching your law school experience with interesting speaker events.
