About Us


A PRESIDENTS’ WELCOME

Hello and welcome to the University of Exeter Law Society! 

Here at UELS we are committed to strengthening your employability and accelerating your personal development whilst ensuring that you have access to a safe and accessible community during your time at university. We champion values of inclusivity and are committed to making a career in the legal sector open and accessible for all. Our Welfare Officer will also ensure that the society goes above and beyond catering for not just your career path, but for your wellbeing too.

We aim to support students from enrollment up to early careers. We host a wide range of events aimed at all students, both law and non-law, in a variety of sectors. Our events include employability and career opportunities with top firms, chambers and businesses, a particular highlight being our cornerstone Careers and Bar Dinners where members can network and get up close and personal with leading professionals.

In addition to our careers offerings we also have a variety of academic events that will guide you through law school, including events that will aid with studying, managing workloads whilst ensuring you have time for your wellbeing, preparing you for the different formats of exams/coursework as well as enriching your law school experience with interesting speaker events.

We have a range of competitions, including mooting, mock trials and negotiation competitions, including newcomer variants for those who have never participated before. Our Pro Bono and mooting activities also ensure that we are giving students the opportunity to develop transferable skills for their career in accessible and inclusive ways, whether that be entering into law or other fields.

Community is a vital part of what makes UELS successful. We offer our members regular socials with like-minded students. The highlight of our calendar is our biannual winter and spring balls, which give our members a chance to dress to the nines and celebrate their achievements at a fabulous venue, you don’t want to miss it!

Our membership card gives you excellent value for money, giving you exclusive discounts at various local businesses around Exeter, such as cafes and our committee’s favorite brunch spots! Our stash drops also happen periodically, giving you the chance to rep everyone’s favorite law society with your own UELS branded clothing, including puffer jackets, hoodies, bucket hats and more! Every year we also offer intramural sport, including netball and football, giving you the opportunity to get involved in teams across the whole uni!

We look forward to welcoming you to our UELS family!
