Congratulations to the Manchester University Law Society (MULS) and the Manchester University Pro Bono Society for taking home three awards, out of five nominations, at the prestigious LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards!
The Student Law Society Awards highlight and celebrate the great work carried by societies across UK campuses, and the fantastic events and opportunities they create for their members. This year, LawCareers.Net received submissions from 38 student law societies alongside 2,700 votes from their members.
The Manchester University Law Society won in the categories “Best Society for Commercial Awareness” and “Best Law Society Overall” (sponsored by DWF Group plc), they received an additional nomination for, “Most Committed to Increasing Diversity” (sponsored by Baker McKenzie).
Hafsah Nawaz, Treasurer for MULS, says “MULS are exceptionally pleased to have won 2 of our 3 nominations at the LCN Student Society Awards, including for Best Society Overall in the UK, facing competition from over 30 other universities.
"The growth of our Society over the last 3 years has been incredible and for it to be recognised externally is a huge testament to the efforts of our Committee and the engagement of our Members.
"Our goal for the last 2 years has been to place MULS on the same par as long-established and successful societies across the country and these awards signify a great achievement towards this goal.
"Our award for Best Society for Commercial Awareness also signposts the lengths the Society has gone to in ensuring that our Members have the best opportunities to enhance their employability in professional fields.
"We are incredibly humbled by our awards, and we cannot wait to see MULS’ continued growth in the years to come for the benefit of our Members and students across the University of Manchester.”
The Pro Bono Society won in the category “Best Social Media” (sponsored by Shoosmiths), they received an additional nomination for “Best Pro Bono Activities”.
President of the Pro Bono Society, Adelina Maghet, says, “Winning the ‘Best Social Media’ award has been incredible to our committee, especially since this has been the first year for our society to get nominated for these awards!
"During the last seven months, social media has become our most valued tool to stay in touch with our members and support them, not only academically, but socially and mentally as well, and to give everyone a look behind the scenes from time to time.
It is wonderful to know our students have noticed our efforts to keep our society close to them in this unusual year and we thank them for their continuous support!”
Congratulations to both societies on their recognition at these prestigious student awards.
