Welcome to the University of Roehampton Law Society. As one of the fastest-growing societies on campus, we aim to provide students with academic, social and networking opportunities, whilst ensuring that their time at Roehampton is fun and memorable.
HELPING YOU KICK-START YOUR CAREER!
On behalf of the Roehampton Law Society, I wish to extend a warm welcome to the new students joining us and continuing in the 2021/2022 Academic Year.
I am humbled and honoured to have been elected as the President of the Roehampton Law Society for 2021/2022. I am deeply grateful to the previous leaders, Shoamar and Aimee, for their dedication and perseverance in what was a difficult year and for providing an excellent array of virtual events and hosting the first virtual Law Fair the Society has seen. They have both guided me and helped me to understand the dynamics of leading the Law Society. I would also like to extend my gratitude to the rest of the committee who, without, this year would not have been as successful as it has been.
I am thrilled to be joined by the new executive committee, Rhyanah (Vice President) and Shadan (Treasurer). Joined with their support I am confident we will be able to achieve new heights as the Roehampton Law Society. With an extension of our podcasting platform and a plethora of new ideas such as bi-weekly workshops and a monthly newsletter. We hope to continue to cater to a varying amount of career paths that an LLB Law degree can provide.
For the academic year, there are certain noteworthy events such as the Law Fair, friendly and intervarsity mooting competitions, collaborations with other internal and external societies and at the end of the year the Law Ball. Look out for our Instagram and LinkedIn pages where details will be posted regularly.
Being a committee member of the Law Society for two years has made me aware of the importance of building networks and not just as a Law student. The Society has provided me with an immensely strong support system throughout my degree. I hope that it can extend to you such support also. I have gained invaluable skills throughout my two years and I firmly believe I am ready to lead.
I wish you the best in your academic journeys at the University of Roehampton and beyond. I look forward to seeing you at our events in the future.
Shoamar Best (President), Aimee Peacock (Vice President) and Rebekka Kreisz ( Treasurer) were elected as officers of the executive committee. The new committee will take over on May 11th, 2020.
