Welcome to the LSESU Law Society
The LSESU Law Society is one of the largest and most active societies within the LSE, awarded 'Best Society of the Year' at the LSESU STAR Awards 2018, and 'Best Mooting Activities' at the LawCareers.Net Awards, alongside a nomination for 'Best Society Overall'. Indeed, we had over 750 members last year spanning subjects from economics to history. The society is ideal for anyone who is interested in a career in the legal profession. We organise a variety of career events and workshops with professionals from a wide range of legal backgrounds. However our focus is not just on careers, we organise a wide range of outside speaker and pro bono events throughout the year. A main focus of our society is to provide a full range of social events for our members, which culminates in our end of year Law Ball, which last year we held at Banking Hall.

Summary of our Michealmas Term 2019:
Looking back on our accomplishments in the past term- from Pro Bono’s fundraising initiatives to Bar and Chambers’s mooting competitions- The LSESU Law Society once again reached remarkable milestones across all its divisions. With over £1000 raised for charity and a new blog launched, the LSE Pro Bono division ended the year with an incredible performance. In Bar and Chambers, the team further developed LSE’s participation in external moots and concluded the term with a staggering number of 11 moots. With a total of 38 career events just in Michaelmas term, our Careers team introduced 6 new events-providing opportunities for both law and non-law members. All the way to the LSE Law Review, our team established new partnerships with Reviews across the UK and hosted events on Constitutional Reform and Academic Publishing. Making our members feel at home, we hosted 2 socials including welcome drinks and Christmas drinks, while continuing our weekly well-being sessions and hosting 2 additional well-being events. With a 20% increase in our social media presence and 8 schools visits done just in Michaelmas term, we further promoted the LSESU Law Society. All the way to Lawyers Without Borders, our team capped the term with 5 pro bono opportunities, 2 events, and 2 publications! Reflecting on our extraordinary performance in Michaelmas term, we are beyond excited to continue providing our members with opportunities above and beyond expectations.
