Legal Awareness Society

Who are we?

The Legal Awareness Society was founded by three third-year LLB students aware of the increased demand from commercial law firms for students with commercial awareness.

In founding this society, we are seeking to make the process of acquiring commercial awareness easier and more accessible to students, so that they are more attractive to commercial law firms.


Why join us?

We will achieve the aim outlined above by:

- Utilising a variety of social media platforms to broadcast the latest business news in an innovative and interactive manner to ensure that students have an in-depth understanding of commercial affairs;

- Hosting interactive panel discussions and seminars on “hot topics”;

- Offering Commercial Awareness workshops in partnership with an ex-Head of Legal of an Investment Bank, specifically focused on helping students to understand how commercial matters affect transactional lawyers;

- Hosting a Commercial Awareness competition available to all students.
