Welcome to the Oxford Law Society. It is one of the largest and most recognised societies at the University of Oxford, serving as students’ primary resource into the legal profession.
Trinity 2019 is finally upon us. It fills me with great pleasure to welcome you, as the President of the Oxford Law Society. I feel privileged to lead one of the university’s most prestigious and renowned societies, and I am very excited for the term ahead.
I would like to say a massive congratulations to the first year Law students on completing their Moderations! Summer in Oxford is the highlight of the calendar year and is an opportunity that should be relished. Even with exams, there are many opportunities to be taken advantage of. We have worked hard to bring you a Term Card to include our most popular events, as well as a selection of presentation events that have never been seen before.
We launch Trinity Term with the highly anticipated President’s Drinks at The Varsity Club. A night of cocktails and canapés commands your attendance. Alongside this we host the ever-popular Tea and Cakes by Herbert Smith Freehills, where you will find copious refreshments and a perfect opportunity to meet representatives from the firm, to learn more about HSF and life as a commercial solicitor. We also bring you speaker events with Justice Project Pakistan, where Sarah Belal will discuss the death penalty, and the immorality behind sentencing; as well as a Mental Health Workshop by Jack Jacobs, in collaboration with the Oxford Finance Society.
The term ends with the Trinity Term Ball, generously sponsored by Shearman and Sterling, at the Georgian masterpiece that is: Ardington House. This Georgian manor, with its own extensive gardens and parkland, is an ideal setting for the Trinity Term Ball. With exclusive use of the manor, as well as its grounds and riverside garden marquee; the night promises to be a spectacular end to the year at Oxford. It is truly a night not to be missed.
I wish to thank the Society’s sponsors, without whom we would not be able to host such wonderful events for our members. I also wish to show my appreciation for my committee, not least Lorraine, Andy, and Divya, whose hard work is sacrosanct with the success of this term. A big thank you goes out to my predecessors- Nobel Basser, David Stuart, and Ali Qureshi- whose support and advice have been integral in putting together this term.
This term will be truly wonderful, and I extend a warm thank you to our members, without whom this term would not be possible. Your attendance and contribution to events is the cause of the society’s prosperity, and I thank you for your continued support. I hope to meet many of you over the course of this term, and I look forward to seeing all of you at events.
Have a fantastic Trinity!
President, Trinity 2019
