Law Society

The University of Brighton Law Society is a Society run for students, by students. Therefore, our key objective is to facilitate access to information relating to careers in and out of the legal sector. Our main themes for this year (2018-2019) will be: Networking, Careers, and Mooting. We will also have a focus on mental health and well-being; by working with the University as well as external agencies to talk about issues such as anxiety and stress around assessment and exam time. 

Networking is a skill that all future lawyers will need to be able to use confidently. It is all about interacting with people to gain information and useful contacts, it is especially important for careers in law. Lawyers will often be required to network and and secure new business, and you may be asked to attend client’s events. 

We have strong links with the legal profession here in Brighton. Throughout the year, we will be hosting various events relating to careers in and outside the law. In previous years we have hosted a Law Ball with attendees from local Solicitors and Barristers’ Chambers; Law Careers Questions Time, and a Wine and Cheese Networking Evening. 

A moot is a type of mock trial, usually an appeal, where the parties will argue a point of law that is in dispute. Mooting has been used to train lawyers for centuries and plays an important role in legal education at Brighton with a dedicated module; it gives students an opportunity to practise the art of persuasive advocacy and legal research. 

Committee

Our committee has been elected by the members of the society, to organise the running of the society. If you would like to be a committee member next year, look out for information about how to stand in February!
