About Us

The Oxford Law Society is one of the largest student societies in Oxford, and is run by students for students. Through our indulgent socials, informative presentations, publications and termly ball, we offer an unrivalled experience for our members.

The Oxford Law Society is open to all members of Oxford University, the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice and some other establishments. Members do not have to be reading law: the society is open to those of any discipline, and indeed over half of our membership base comprises non-lawyers. Please enter the “Join” page for more information about becoming a member.

LawSoc has an enviable reputation for holding some of the most popular and successful social events in Oxford. Sponsored social events are enable our members to meet with our sponsors in a more informal setting.

Popular social events have included President’s Drinks (sponsored by Herbert Smith Freehills), Champagne & Canapés, Wine Tasting, Pizza & Prosecco, Cocktails & Cupcakes and Burritos & Mojitos.

The society also holds extremely popular termly balls at well-known venues, such as Harry Potter World, the Old Royal Naval College, the London Aquarium, Warwick Castle, the Gherkin, Blenheim Palace, Syon Park and the National Gallery. All events are open to members of the society.

For those looking to enter the legal profession, LawSoc gives you invaluable exposure. The society provides a great deal of career information through its website and events. The termly series of Presentations provide insightful discussions on topical or essential career-related issues. These often include ‘Law for Non-Lawyers’, ‘Commercial Awareness’ and Case Study presentations.

The Society’s well-respected termly magazine, Verdict, contains society news, topical articles by icons from the legal world as well as the winning essays from the termly essay competition. The publication is delivered to members in 8th week of each term.
