Best society for aspiring barristers

University of Nottingham Bar Society

Back to winners

The Bar Society is a student-run group formed to help those aspiring to (or considering) a career at the Bar.

We have one of the largest memberships and receive an unhealthy amount of sponsorship from lovely law firms which means one thing: we can provide the biggest socials with the cheapest prices every couple of weeks, as well as securing our members more discounts than any other society from some of Nottingham’s biggest names. From bars to restaurants to clubs, we cover everything – even the taxi home! On top of our amazing social calendar, LawSoc offers an unparallelled careers service for both law and non-law students, organising a million-and-one firm presentations, workshops and networking events throughout the year, balancing our grand balls and river cruises against our careers fair and dinner at the Hilton Hotel.
