The UL Law Society is one of the University’s most prominent societies.
While its members mainly consist of Law undergraduates and postgraduates, there is an ever-growing contingent of non-Law students joining us. The Law Society is a great outlet for anyone with a passion for human rights and civil liberties, debate, and discussion. The Society hosts many events, both social and academic each year and will run a range of events such as legal skills workshops, mooting competitions, essay competitions, seminars, guest speakers, a trip to the Four Courts, trips to visit other law societies, and much more.
On the social side of things, the Law Society has a number of new events planned as well as the familiar Law Ball, one of UL's most prestigious balls, and with each year this proves to be the highlight of many peoples’ social calendar.
The Law Society has been working hard over the past few months to build up links with local and national organisations. We have been working with many firms and institutes such as Matheson, A&L Goodbody, The Irish Tax Institute, and Arthur Cox. You can find the Law Society on Facebook under “University of Limerick Law Society”, on twitter @ULLawSoc, or email the Society at firstname.lastname@example.org to keep up to date with upcoming events and& news.
To become a member of the University of Limerick Law Society students need to sign up at the Clubs and Societies recruitment drive (that takes place week 3 in both semesters) and pay a €5.00 fee.
If members miss the recruitment drive they may attend any event that we host and pay their membership fee to one of the committee members. Once they have paid their fee, they must request membership to the Law Society on the UL Wolves site and we will accept them.
There are approximately 200 members of the Law Society that come from all types of courses and degrees across the University of Limerick.
