Our society is primarily for students enrolled on the LLB Law with American Law course, however this year we are aiming to expand and are therefore open to all students with an interest in America, and its effect on the global financial and political scene.
As our society is growing, members will have a unique opportunity to help shape it into the society that they want to see, providing members who take an active role with an excellent opportunity to add a range of skills to their résumé.
We are planning to run a range of socials this year. Some of these will be exclusively for our members, however we are also aiming to run a few larger socials with other societies to encourage members to meet people outside of their course. In addition to socials, we are keen to maintain an academic focus. We are hoping to run competitions and debates throughout the year, focusing on both America and its impact on the world.
Due to the prevalence of America in the global scene, we hope that by following its actions members will gain an invaluable awareness of the world, in both legal and business spheres. We aim to keep members up to date with business and legal news coming out of America, as well as linking it with the effect that it has both domestically and globally.
As previously stated, we hope to grow our society significantly this year, and as part of this the committee welcomes any ideas for events, socials and activities. It is our goal to make the American Law society versatile and wide ranging, providing members with the best possible experience, as well as the tools to improve CV's and applications, helping careers in the long run.
