The Law Society at UL is one of the Universities most prominent societies. While our members mainly consist of Law undergraduates and postgraduates, there is an ever growing contingent of non Law students joining us. The Law Soc is a great outlet for anyone with a passion for human rights and civil liberties, debate and discussion. Our theme for the academics year 2015/2016 is "The Theory of Law". The society hosts many events, both social and academic each year and this year, we will be run a range of events in line with our theme including Legal Skills Workshops, Mooting Competitions, Essay Competitions, Seminars, Guest Speakers, A Trip to the Four Courts, Trips to visit other Law Societies and much much more. We also run a Peer Mentoring Scheme for the incoming first year law students. They will be paired with an older "buddy" (an older law student) to help them settle in during their first few weeks in college. On the social side of things we have a number of new events planned as well as the familiar Law Ball, one of UL's most prestigious balls, and with each year this proves to be the highlight of many peoples social calendar. We have been working hard over the past few months to build up our links with local and national organisations. We will be working with many firms and institutions such as Matheson, A&L Goodbody, The Irish Tax Institute and Arthur Cox.
