The Oxford Brookes Law Society is one of the largest societies on campus at Oxford Brookes University. Through our social and career events, we deliver a unique experience to members, most of whom are seeking a career in law.
We offer a wide range of opportunities for members to develop the skills that commercial law firms are looking for in applicants through client interviewing competitions and mentoring. We also encourage our members to get involved with the wider legal landscape through informal discussions on new developments in commercial law, assisting in developing their commercial awareness.
Our members have also taken part in internal and external competitions in areas such as mooting and client interviewing, often finding success nationally and internationally. The Oxford Brookes Law Society also assists students in pro bono work, which raises their awareness of local and national issues of legal access. We also work with the death penalty charity, Amicus ALJ, as well as the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, the Access to Justice Foundation’s annual Legal Walk and Oxfam’s ‘Lawyers Against Poverty’ campaign.
