The Law Society is one of the largest student societies at Queen Mary and currently has 440 members. The Society offers guidance to all students considering a career in the legal sector. As members of the Society, students gain exposure to all possible legal careers from working for a City firm to being part of an in-house legal team.
Working closely with QM Careers the Society hosts a number of networking events with some of the best law firms. It is currently sponsored by eleven City law firms and two of the best professional law schools in London. The Society also hosts an annual Negotiation Competition, the largest student-run competition on campus, as well as many social events including the inaugural Queen Mary Law Ball in 2014.
The Queen Mary Law Journal
The Queen Mary Law Journal (QMLJ) is a collection of essays and academic articles published annually by the Queen Mary Law Society. It is an entirely student-run publication, with both its leadership and editorial board drawn from the student body at Queen Mary University of London. Founded in 1998 and re-introduced in 2010, the journal’s primary commitment is to offer an avenue for students and practitioners of the law to publish work that falls outside the scope of the typical legal curriculum.
The Law Society has recently been awarded the title of Society of the Year by the Queen Mary Student’s Union for this academic year. In addition we have also been nominated for the NUS Society of the Year.
