The Legal History Society was founded in 2015 with the aim of being a society in which to make friends and expand your knowledge. We organise a range of events for our members throughout the year including guest speakers and socials such as bar crawls.
Last year, the committee organised a trip to London to further develop member’s knowledge of the legal system and history. This society can appeal and be beneficial to a range of courses and disciplines e.g. history, law, sociology, policing etc. Although we are a law-based society we welcome people from all disciplines, including History, Sociology and Criminology. Therefore, if you are interested, please come along to an event or social as you are more than welcome!
As well as providing a fun calendar of events for our members, the society also aims to develop valuable skills and provide a support network for members during their time at university.
This year we aim to further develop the society by organising more socials, including a Halloween Bar Crawl and pub quizzes. Similarly, we are also planning some trips within the region in order to showcase the North-East's legal history.
