LSE Law Society

"The Law Society is one of the liveliest and most popular societies at LSE, with something always going on. From tours of corporate law firms and career-advice seminars to parties at some of London's hottest venues, our yearly Ball and lectures by the worlds' top lawyers - be it our very own Cherie Booth QC or judges from the highest courts in Britain and the world. The Society is a great opportunity to get to know those people you say hello to in every lecture, but never seem to get the chance to have proper conservations with. By joining the Law Society you will get the chance to explore possible career paths, interact with top-class solicitors and barristers ... and hopefully have a few great nights out with people you'll never forget!"

LSE Public Law Society

The LSE Public Law Society will discuss current issues in public law in practice and encourage comparative public law analysis. The discussion forums will meet once a term.  The Patron is the Rt. Hon. Lord Justice Sir Stephen Sedley QC; Chairman: Professor Martin Loughlin; Director & Administrator: Abhijit Pandya.


A moot is an argument on legal issues that takes place between two teams of lawyers, argued in front of a hypothetical court. At LSE undergraduate and postgraduate students are able to take part in a wide variety of moots, both within the Department and in national and international competitions.  Moots are a great way to enhance one's ability present legal arguments orally and to gain an insight into the workings of the legal profession
