Annual General Meeting

Posted 4th Apr 2023
Author Elizabeth Murphy (President)




DATE: Thursday 20 April 2023

TIME: 6 pm 

VENUE: Courtyard Meeting Room 


All members are invited to attend the Law Society’s AGM which will take place Thursday 20 April at 6 pm in the Courtyard Meeting Room. Hustings for the Committee of the 33rd Session of the Society will be held; voting will open for a period of 24 hours following the AGM. A referendum to delete the constitutional provisions pertaining to the Plassey Law Review will also take place, details of this are listed below. 

         An agenda for the AGM will be circulated in advance of the meeting, if any members have any points for discussion, please email FAO President. 



The Plassey Law Review was initially established as a sub-committee of the Law Society with the view of one day becoming its own independent group once a strong organisational structure of its own was established; the Plassey Law Review has now reached this point. 

Our Constitution currently provides for the Plassey Law Review as an objective of the Society under Article 3.6 and lists the Editor in Chief of the Plassey Law Review as a committee member under Article 5.1.11. These articles need to be deleted in order to reflect the independence of the Plassey Law Review.

Preparation for 'Return to Play'

Posted 1st Sep 2020
Author Sarah White (President)

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update on Society activities in the lead up to UL's re-opening!

We are hard at work scheduling and reformatting events in order to ensure they are guideline-compliant. Our committee is in constant communication with the School of Law and law firms in order to ensure our members receive the most up-to-date information in relation to classes resuming, recruitment opportunities, and more. Make sure to keep a close eye on our socials in the upcoming weeks, as this will be our main platform on which to update you all on our plans for the Academic Year!

We will be doing the best we can to have business as usual, including our social events. However, we can't do that without our members. We will be enforcing all government and university guidelines in relation to COVID-19, and we need full cooperation in order to remain in operation!

We'll be back soon with more updates. Stay safe!
