This year, MULS has undergone a complete transformation in how we support and develop our members’ commercial awareness. We are taking the initiative to rely less on what we can get from firms, to what we, as Committee Members who have been successful in securing training contracts, vacation schemes, insight schemes, and open days, have practically learned that translates into useable and tested advice that is guaranteed to support our members in being successful in application processes, competitions and generally
in demonstration of their critical thinking skills.

“This society is the best I’ve seen at engaging non-law students! They have a specific non-law social media and a very thorough non-law guide with all the information you need on converting to law and understanding the industry.

“The society consists of a range of pro bono projects, each with its own team, branding, social media and unique goals. There’s so much to get involved in. One particular event that comes to mind as being innovative is when the society partnered with a homelessness group photography class to take headshots of students – I thought this was an amazing way to bring people together.”

Most committed to increasing diversity

University of Nottingham Law Society

Alongside the regular diversity events, there is a diversity council with elected heads to advise the committee – which is a great structural way to increase diversity.

“This year has seen the biggest push in increasing diversity for many years, with a myriad of schemes, including a first-of-its-kind bursary scheme for ethnic minorities. Alongside the regular diversity events, there is a diversity council with elected heads to advise the committee – which is a great structural way to increase diversity. As a student from a minority group, the support and information from the society has made me feel much more at home not only in the society, but in Nottingham as a whole.”

Most committed to increasing diversity

Our society continues to provide the broadest range of opportunities and serves as the ‘go-to’ law-related society on campus.
