Dear Members,

On behalf of the Oxford Law Society, I welcome you back to Oxford for Hilary Term 2017. The Society is one of the largest in Oxford and enjoys a reputation for hosting some of the most glamorous social events and arranging invaluable networking opportunities. This term will be no different, so please read on to see what we can offer you.

Hilary Term starts with the renowned President’s Drinks, sponsored by Herbert Smith Freehills, which will take place at Modern Art Oxford. Other highlights of the calendar include Champagne & Canap├ęs at 1855 and the Varsity Dinner with Cambridge University Law Society at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London, which will be a fantastic evening for all. We are also hosting numerous workshops and presentations focussing on helping our members learn more about, or prepare for, a career in law. This includes a presentation by Christopher Stoakes, author of Know The City. These are all kindly sponsored by some of the world’s top law firms and institutions. The term will end with the Hilary Ball, which promises to be an absolutely unforgettable night. This will be held at the Roman Baths.

Building on the success of Michaelmas Term, we are continuing the “President’s Perks” discount scheme for members at some local businesses. We are also partnered with Encore Events, formerly Shuffle Nights, which comes with exclusive club deals for our members. For more information on both of these, please see the page in the term card entitled “LawSoc Details”.

As ever, a huge thank you goes to Herbert Smith Freehills, who are generously sponsoring this term card, and all our sponsors for their continued support. Thank you also to committee for their dedication and enthusiasm, and my thanks go especially to Leanne, Hena and Maddie for being completely dependable and for working incredibly hard to ensure the success of the Oxford Law Society this term.

Finally, thank you to all our members. Your membership and engagement with our events is essential for the enduring success and popularity of the Society, which in turn means that everyone benefits not only from the opportunity to attend spectacular social events but also from the advice of highly acclaimed professionals.
Have a wonderful term, and we look forward to seeing you at our events!

Chantal Olavesen
President, Hilary 2017
