The Manchester Law School Law Society is one of the largest societies at Manchester Metropolitan University. They host a variety of events throughout the academic year ensuring that all students, law or otherwise, get the most out of their university experience.
The Law Society aims to inspire and support members who aspire to work in the legal profession by providing students with opportunities to network and improve their academic abilities and knowledge of the law. They also offer students fun, enjoyment and the opportunity of making new friends and socialising with like-minded individuals.
There are Guest Speaker events throughout the year alongside a series of exclusive workshops and various clinics that are guaranteed to boost your CV and increase your awareness of career opportunities.
