Educational and Career Events

T

he society aims to make as many career and educational opportunities available to our members as possible. We aim to diversify the type of events ranging both in terms of types of legal career and type of event e.g. workshops, talks and one-on-one support. Previously, the USLS has organised trips to the UK Supreme Court, as well as host a range of brilliant alumni who come to speak to current students about many career opportunities in law and beyond; this alumni networking event includes a wine and cheese evening, which allows to students to mingle with alumni and speak to them in-depth. Workshops are held regularly, with guest speakers from law and law-related backgrounds; in the past, these workshops have been hosted by DMH Stallard, Thomson, Snell and Passmore, as well as BPP and the College of Law. In addition, we have helped attract recruitment teams from London and local firms to Sussex to speak to students about vacation and training contracts.

Another great opportunity to get in touch with various firms and chambers is the Career Fair held usually around November. Last year, the fair hosted a variety of employers in the field of law. Whatever your interest may be, the USLS is committed to hosting a range of events that will appeal broadly to our members.

Social Events

D

uring the course of the year the society organises various social events, available at a reduced price to members – these range from fun nights out on the town to the grand and always memorable Winter Law Ball. The Winter Law Ball is the pinnacle of social events for the society and considered very important on the calender for all law students, this year we aim to make it the most memorable yet and look forward to gaining sponsorship for this event to summarise our legacy as the 2015-2016 Committee.

The USLS truly strives to make our socials inclusive and enjoyable, these events will be a wonderful way to get to meet fellow law students and develop friendships that will last beyond your days at Sussex way into your legal careers.
