2021/22 LawSoc President Ishita Karnik told us “I am so pleased that the LawSoc has won the Best Academic Society Award and the Inclusivity Award. Over the past year, the entire committee has worked hard to deliver a range of fantastic events to help our members hone their academic skills, build their professional network and access careers events which have given our members the necessary exposure to pursue a career in law. We have also worked hard to ensure that we become a more inclusive society, and winning the Inclusivity Award attests to the success of doing so. It’s been a true honour to lead the society this year”.
