Law Society 2021/22

 

Welcome to the University of Reading Law Society's RUSU page!

The Law Society is an essential feature of the Law student experience here at the University of Reading or for any student interested in Law.

On a social front, we provide a welcome respite from hard studying with events throughout the year. These events include the Freshers Wine Reception, the trip to Ascot, the Christmas Quiz, Elections, The Summer Picnic, the famous Law Society Ball and our Trip Abroad! There are also countless socials so you can meet your fellow law students or sports teams for you to join.

We also have a host of academic ventures, such as Mooting, Negotiation Competitions, Careers Workshops, Pro Bono Activities, which are jointly hosted by top law firms throughout the year and give you invaluable information and experience to help bulk up your CV. Each year, the conclusion of the Osborne Clarke Mooting Competition is held in the Supreme Court, and in the past, we have had barristers and Supreme Court Justices judge. We have recently won the 'Best Mooting Activities' Award sponsored by Blake Morgan in the National Student Law Society Awards 2019!

Membership with the Society will offer you exclusive access to these events, discounted prices, and priority over Non-Members. Membership with the Society is essential to make the most of your three years here. You can now sign up for just £15.15 for one year or £40.15 for three years; you can purchase your membership below.

The Law Society Committee look forward to meeting you all at these events and in sessions throughout the year. We wish you the very best of luck for the year ahead.
