Welcome from your Incoming President!

Hi I'm Nicola, incoming third year Law student and very proud President of the University of Derby Law Society 2021-2022.

Huge thanks go to last year's committee for pulling together their events in the midst of a pandemic, and to all the Society members who voted for me as president. I wouldn't be here but for your actions.

I'm sure you're all crossing everything very tightly for a normal, face to face uni experience this academic year; I certainly am. Whatever happens with lectures and seminars, rest assured that your Law Society Committee is absolutely committed to running face to face events throughout the academic year, so long as we are not prevented from doing so. Freshers, Halloween, Christmas and Re-Freshers events are all in the pipeline, not to mention the Law Ball. We have a full calendar of events in the pipeline for you to enjoy. 

Have a look at out Events Calendar page to see what we have planned so far. More details will be added just as soon as they have been finallised. 

We are really excited to be piloting a few new ideas- Law Soc hoodies, Law Soc lanyards and some awesome connections with Legal Cheek, DLA Piper and Westlaw to name but a few. 

Although not yet finallised, we have plans for internal mooting competitions for both new and experienced mooters coming soon. The Westlaw Moot last year was a resounding success, and we will be running qualifying rounds for this new, prestigious competition in association with the Mooting Team. 

We at the Law Society are always open to new ideas for events, whether they be social, charity or careers focussed. If you have any ideas, drop us an email using the orange "email" link to the right. 

We really can't wait to meet you. New students and returning students, from foundtion to PhD... If you're interested in Law, we're interested in getting to know you!

See you in September!
