Law Soc named Society of the Year at the National Societies Awards 2016

The University of Leeds Law Society was announced ‘Society of the Year’ at the very first NUS Connect National Societies Awards.

The event was held at UWE Bristol and brought together a great number of student societies from across the UK to celebrate their successes and achievements.

“The National Societies Awards (NSA) is the first national event to credit societies for their contribution to students’ career prospects and experience during their time at university.”

Richard Brooks, NUS Vice President (Union Development), judged the awards. He said: "I’m proud of the activities taking place in societies within students’ unions, and so impressed with the dedication of the volunteers who put so much energy and enthusiasm into their societies. Judging the first National Societies Awards has been a pleasure, and I’m looking forward to the awards ceremony on 4th June! We know societies change lives, keep students in education and make society a better place and I’m so proud to be celebrating that."

The School of Law would like to congratulate the Society, its talented committee and everyone else involved in making this year a truly successful one.
