Welcome to the Law Society of NUI Galway!

We are one of the oldest and largest societies on campus. Our aim is to assist students who wish to develop a range of legal clinical and social skills, through tailored events to meet the interests and needs of our members.

With guest speakers, mooting clinics, volunteering opportunities, workshops and trips at home and abroad, we provide our members with a head-start on their career path. Whether you are an aspiring solicitor, barrister or are thinking of pursuing a different route following a Law Degree, we will help you on your way, connecting you to firms, organisation and institutions.

Law Soc has always maintained a reputation for having one of the best social calendars of a Society in NUI Galway. The annual Law Ball is always a hotly anticipated event in the calendars of Galway Law Students, and one that continues to be talked about for months after!

All of this not to mention the freshers events and Induction Day, charity fundraising, quizzes and cocktails, and other unique and exciting opportunities to socialise and meet with fellow students, providing our members with useful respite from their desks and libraries!

We are proudly sponsored by two of Ireland’s top law firms. A&L Goodbody, and Matheson along with Galway’s #1 Nightclub: Electric Garden & Theatre. Our corporate friends allow us to continue the hearty reputation of the society in keeping with our ethos of integration, education diversification and, more importantly, having a laugh!

We have an exciting year of events ahead, ranging from our ever-popular Law Ball in November, Moot Court Clinics & CompetitionsDebatesGuest SpeakersClinical Legal WorkshopsLocal & International TripsCareer EventsNetworking Opportunities, and so much more…

We look forward to welcoming all of our new members for the year ahead. In the mean time please like us on facebook, follow us on twitter, say hello on campus, or drop us a line via email at lawsoc@socs.nuigalway.ie

Go n-éirí an bóthar libh i bhuir gcuid oibre, agus táimid ag súil go mór fíorchaoin fáilte a fhearadh romhaibh go luath!
