Providing Opportunities to Students Interested in law
I am honoured to serve as your President for the Oxford Law Society this Michaelmas Term 2023. It is a privilege to lead a society that is rich in tradition and vibrant in its diversity and inclusivity.
Our commitment to fostering a welcoming environment for all members is paramount. We have crafted a term card that reflects diverse interests, catering to law and non-law students alike.
We are thrilled to commence our term with our biggest President’s Drinks yet on the 18th of October at Oxford Town Hall. This event promises an evening of elegance, connection, and celebration, marking the beginning of a term filled with enriching experiences.
We have diversified our event offerings. Our schedule is infused with a mix of social and educational events, each designed to provide valuable insights into various legal fields and offer opportunities for networking and engagement.
Your participation and feedback are essential in shaping a term that is reflective of our collective aspirations. I am eager to embark on this journey with you, confident that we will create a memorable and impactful experience together.
PRESIDENT OF MICHAELMAS 2023
What we do
The Oxford Law Society is committed to helping students explore different legal careers. Every term we host a number of presentations and application workshops with leading law firms, which help our members who are looking to secure first-year insight schemes, vacation schemes, or training contracts with the most prestigious law firms.
For those wishing to pursue careers as barristers we host similar types of events. We also offer insight a wide range of different areas of law such as family law and human rights law. Our careers events are always relevant to non-law students in helping them discover more about the legal field.
Some of our members are set on a legal career, others join simply because we also have the reputation of hosting the largest and most in-demand social events at the University.
Presidents’ drinks, held each term, offers a fully open bar, delicious sweet and savoury treats, and fantastic musical entertainment.
Each term continues with a vast array of social events, including LawSoc classics, such as Tapas & Sangria, Burritos & Mojitos, and the ever-popular Puppy Party. New events are often included, such as Jazz & Cocktails and Crazy Golf & Cocktails.
With our commitment to promoting diversity within the legal profession, we hold a number of socials which focus on the importance of diversity in the workplace.
These diversity-focused events often begin with a presentation or panel discussion with representatives from leading law firms discussing the role of the diversity networks at their firm and how their firm has supported them throughout their training.
We hope that the networking drinks that follow these discussions allow members from backgrounds that are traditionally under-represented in the City to make meaningful connections with top firms.
One of the highlights of the Oxford social calendar is the incredible LawSoc Ball. These are held every term and are always extravagant affairs. Previous venues have included, The National Gallery, Natural History Museum, and Blenheim Palace.
