Internal Affairs and Welfare

As the Internal Affairs and Welfare Officer it is my job to look after the well being of the members of the Law Society. We at the Law Society are always trying to bring more opportunities and support for our members. Get help of the Best essay writer online.

This year Internal Affairs and Welfare has many new exciting projects:

A major aspect of my job is to start and maintain the mentoring scheme. This scheme pairs up a current student (the Mentor) with a new student (the Mentee) and is meant to act as a system of support and help with issues ranging from module choices, essays to personal issues. The scheme has worked very successfully in the past and this year we hope to improve and expand on it.

Student Problem Time

I will be available in the Law School Common Room from 1-2pm on Mondays to answer any problems that students may have. These problems can include any issues that you would prefer not to discuss with your Personal Tutor/ Mentor or issues you would like brought to the attention of the Law Society. I will now be representing the Law Society in the SSLC, so you can come and see me to highlight any issues you would like to be discussed in these meetings. Alternatively, you can just come and chat! If you can not make it within this time, email any problems and I can reply by email or meet with you at a more convenient time. Hopefully there will also be a box where sensible (!) questions can be posted that I can email replies to or refer you to the appropriate person.

Common Room Refurbishment

Please email any changes or additions to the Common Room that you would like to see. Already ideas have included a water cooler, recycling bin and a coffee machine. This is your space so make it one you want!

Book Sale Money

The deadline for claiming Book Sale Money has now passed. If you have a genuine reason why you have not been able to collect your money in the past three weeks, please email me.

Mentoring Scheme Pub Quiz

Sunday 19th November, 7pm in The Graduate Club. £200 worth of prizes! Free to enter! Easy questions! An open Bar! How can you resist!!! Thanks to the kind support of our new sponsor, Addleshaw Goddard.

In the Spring Term the Law society is going to organise the first Module Choice Day. Students and Staff will come together to discuss the module options and you can gain more information from all points of view before you make those important module decisions! This will offer a more detailed and personal guide than the Module Choice Booklet.

We are also working on providing a forum for discussion on issues that are important to you along with having a better dialogue with the Law School. There are several ways by which you can participate in this forum so watch this space for more news. Here’s hoping you have a fantastic year!
