Presidents Welcome

Hello and welcome to the University of Southampton’s Law Society.

The society is a student led society that has been running for over 10 years. Our key aims are to support our members' ambitions of achieving a career in law, regardless of subject discipline, through running a diverse and exciting schedule of events throughout the year. This includes a focus on interactive employability skills workshops, Open Days at city and regional firms, dinner and drinks with lawyers, our ever-popular Law Firm Quiz Nights and our yearly trip to the European Parliament in Brussels. Our biggest academic event is our Negotiation Competition, which involves four rounds and a final. Last year we had 64 participants and our finalists went on to take part in the Regional Negotiation Competition and placed second overall!

Whilst we take employability seriously, we also run great social events throughout the year. This allows our members to get to know each other in a more relaxed environment. Our Christmas Ball is a spectacular highlight and we also celebrate the end of the academic year with our Summer Boat Ball. In addition, throughout the year our members can sign up to our Netball, Football, Badminton and Hockey teams and take on students in other faculties throughout the University.

If you wish to get in touch with the law society at any point, please do not hesitate to contact us via email:

Please feel free to explore our website and browse our Law Society Blog accessed here: . Throughout the year, our Law Firm Sponsors will be contributing to it with articles from lawyers at the firm to help our members learn more about the firms, and learn tips and tricks for those all-important application forms

All the best,

Jonathan Cooper
