There are many other extra-curricular activities that will help develop your legal skills. You might consider some of the following activities:

  • Debating – develop your speaking skills and ability to form strong arguments to support your case.
  • Model United Nations – work on your speaking and negotiation skills. Useful for negotiating as a lawyer or a diplomat in future.
  • Law Society executive positions – help organise law events and run student initiatives in university’s Law Society.
  • Politics – many politicians have studied a law degree. Run for your university’s student council and work on your skills of persuasion, to represent your students.

There is no need to join only societies that are relevant to law. Make the most of your university years and join a society that tickles your fancy!

  • Sports – joining a sport team is an excellent way to keep fit and reduce your stress. Work on your leadership and teamwork skills, while meeting lots of new people.
  • Charity groups – spend a little time making the lives of others better.
  • Language/cultural societies – learn a new language and experience a new culture.
  • Any many other societies ranging from the Dog-lovers society to the Quidditch team!
