Societies at the School of Law

When you become a BCU student, you automatically become a member of our Students’ Union, giving you access to the wide range of fantastic services and facilities that they offer. BCUSU offers over 100 societies and sports team for you to get involved in. Whatever your interests, they’ve got it covered.

Below we take a look at some of the societies created by our students in the School of Law.

Debating and Mooting Society

The Debating and Mooting Society aims to help Law students develop the skills required for mooting and debating including public speaking, research and rational thinking.

Treasurer, Jemma Stanford, says, ‘Being a member of the Debating and Mooting Society is a great way to boost your confidence whilst learning more about advocacy and representing a client in court. It is also a fantastic opportunity to network with a range of legal professionals from all over the UK!’

Law Society

If you are a student who is studying one of our Law courses, or a student on another course who has an interest in law, then you can join the Law Society, which is run by our current law students. The society was set up so that students could come together and discuss the content being taught in formal lectures, while also providing a platform to enhance the student experience for all law students.

University-wide societies

As well as the range of societies run by our students in the Faculty of Business, Law and Social Sciences, BCUSU has hundreds of other societies that students from any course can join.

There are a variety of faith and culture societies including Sikh, Jewish, Indian, African, Christian, Italian and Chinese societies.

There are societies for those interested in media and creative subjects including Anime and Manga, eSports, film, chess and radio societies.

If you’re into sports and being active, there are societies for Bhangra, Dance, Yoga, Burlesque, Cheerleading, Ice Hockey, Rock Climbing, Football, Polo and Taekwondo.

Then, there are campaign and representation societies for areas such as the Earth, LGBTQ+, Disabled Students, International, Parents and Carers, Mature Students and People of Colour.

Plus, not to leave out the weird and wonderful, there is even a Louis Theroux Appreciation Society! So, as you can see, there should be something for everyone at BCU!
