At the beginning of each academic year students are invited to apply for positions on the Student Social Committee, supported by the Student Association. Students organise and run the societies at our campuses, meaning you have the opportunity to suggest a society you’d like to take part in at the University and we’ll help you bring it to life.
Here are some of the clubs and societies that students have started and run previously at our Nottingham campus:
- Societies - Commercial Awareness Society, Law Society, Literary and Debating Society, Bar and Mooting Society, Nottingham Legal Skills Club.
- Events - student socials, wellbeing, mental health and resilience events.
We have an award-winning pro bono programme that gives you a unique opportunity to put the legal skills you are learning into practice, whilst making a real difference to people in your community with unmet legal needs.
Throughout the opportunities you engage in, you will be developing essential legal skills that employers will be looking for. It is acknowledged that high quality, relevant work experience is now imperative on your CV.
You do not need prior knowledge of a particular area of law before participating in many of the pro bono schemes, as we provide you with the support and training you need.
