The University of Leicester Student Law Society was announced the winner of 'Best Law Society for Student Engagement 2017' at an awards ceremony, Painters’ Hall, London on 16 March 2017.

The LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards recognises the activities, events and projects held by student committees across the country. Student law societies create opportunities for both law and non-law students to develop their employability and gain a range of skills essential for a legal career.

The University of Leicester Student Law Society was selected from committees across the UK to be nominated in the third annual awards. Only two other law societies received as many nominations from voters as Leicester.

The University of Leicester Law Society received nominations for the following awards.

  • Best student engagement – Winner
  • Best law society president
  • Best society for non-law students
  • Best law society overall

Scarlett Stock, chairperson said, “When I became chairperson my vision was to re-brand and re-build the Law Society to intrinsically instil a sense of community and high standards. One of my aims, however ridiculously ambitious it sounded at the time, was to make us the best law society in the country. With a positive attitude, unrelenting determination and most importantly recognising that we are always stronger working together - we are on the cusp of achieving this dream. I couldn't be more proud of everyone that has made this achievable.”

The awards are sponsored by a number of leading law firms including Kirkland and Ellis International LLP, Clyde and Co LLP, Dechert LLP and Osborne Clarke LLP. Representatives of whom will attend the awards ceremony on Thursday 16 March, Painter’s Hall, London.

It has been an exciting and successful year so far for the Law Society and we wish the team good luck with their nominations.
