Want to be a part of the most active society in UCD?? Then LawSoc is the place for you. Running events almost every day of term, there really is something for everyone in the Law Society, regardless of what you study!!
Interested in debating? We run weekly house debates on Tuesdays from the FitzGerald Chamber (currently being streamed on zoom) on a range of motions from the serious (United Ireland, Euthanasia, the US Election), to the less serious (closing night clubs forever, Dubs v Culchies and much much more)!! These debates attract fascinating guests from politics, the media and many more spheres. If you’re interested in getting involved in debating, we run two internal debating competitions, James Joyce Maidens and Maidens Mace, and send speakers and judges to competitions across Europe and beyond. Don’t worry if you’ve no experience in debating as we run weekly training sessions to make you all into experts!!
If events are more your scene, we’ve got you covered too. Running regular events such as pub quizzes, movie screenings and online bingo, we’ll keep you entertained during quarantine, and as soon as we’re allowed we’ll be back to running the biggest nights out on campus such as the famed Law Ball, one of the best and most anticipated nights in the UCD calendar. We also bring in brilliant guest speakers, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Donald Tusk, The Script and Bill Clinton having addressed LawSoc in the past. This year is no different with brilliant guests lined up such as Dermot Kennedy, Louise O’Neill and Rejjie Snow.
Finally, as the name suggests, we are the Law Society and if you’re interested in a legal career, we have loads for you too. From careers advice and workshops every week to exam prep, we’ll help you unleash your inner Elle Woods and Saul Goodmans.
We’re always open to questions and suggestions, so if you’d like to ask us anything then message our socials or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing you at our events soon!!
