The Official University of Essex Law Society
Welcome to the Essex Law Society sign-up page. The University of Essex Law Society is one of the largest and oldest societies on campus. We strive to provide a variety of events for law students that focus on helping your career in law across all specalisation areas. The Essex Law Society is a place to connect with like-minded students at our university through socials and career events.
You will not regret buying our membership, because it’s FREE! We aspire to help the maximum number of students at our university. We understand that joining multiple societies can get costly very quickly, so we have decided to scrap our membership fee, and with Covid-19 being prevelent, we are forecasting a lot of our events will be hosted online.
What can you expect by joining our society?
Our main goal is to help you to derive the maximum out of your stay at the essex uni – from both a career perspective as well as a social and interactive perspective. By joining the Essex Law Society, we can help you with the following:
Pushing to be your best self, for your future.
Law is an incredibly competitive and hard-working career path, whether it be as a practicing barrister, a city commercial lawyer, or as a role in the government (to name a few). Of course you need to make the most of your time at the university to distinguish yourself from the other candidates. We have prepared, and are continously working to create events, seminars and competitions for you, to have the best opportunity to improve your best 'self' for your future area of legal practice that you are passionate about.
Making connections for a life-time
Last but not least, your stay at Essex can be an opportunity to make lasting great friendships. The next year may unfortunately be one of the most challenging years we have experienced with the circumstances of COVID-19. The Essex Law Society Committee understands and will take critical measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students. We are therefore moving many of our events online, and still pushing for whenever we can to have physical events with safety precautions in place!
Socials for the Essex Law Society, will be priority for the society, to truly have a society presence! With the developments of the pandemic, we will take every step we can to create social environments for our members, to feel included, safe and have an enjoyable time as a member of this society.
