Kent Law Fair and Lecturers’ Moot

This Wednesday (17th October) was an exciting, and very busy day, for the student law societies at Kent Law School.

KSLS Annual Law Fair

During the day, the Kent Student Law Society (check out their new website here!) held its annual Law Fair, where students and graduates are given the opportunity to meet law firms, LPC/GDL/BPTC providers and Kent Careers Service. The list of esteemed attendees included 16 regional and international law firms (including Freshfields!), 6 LPC providers, 4 groups (including LawCareers.net and Westlaw) and, of course, the Kent Law Campaign!

The student committee were out in force and 50 students, keen to help out, signed up to the Law Campaign mailing list (if you haven’t already signed up, e-mail Dhriti at KLCSSecretary@gmail.com to receive updates on KLC events).

We’d like to say a huge well done to the Kent Student Law Society for their fantastic Law Fair!

KLTS Lecturers’ Moot

In the evening, Kent Law Campaign set up shop and the Kent Law Temple Society’s first ever Lecturers’ Moot.

The Lecturers’ Moot saw four of Kent Law School’s lecturers go head-to-head, over a challenging criminal law problem question before esteemed judges including lecturer Lisa Dickson and KLTS’s learned Matthew Gaunt and Matt Lawson.

The event, held in the Senate building, had a huge turnout and saw Per Laleng fend off strong opposition to take the prize (an engraved silver gavel) for best mooter.

After the moot, the Kent Law Campaign raffled off a number of prizes, including a huge box of fudge from Canterbury’s Fudge Kitchen, vouchers for Nando’s and Subway, a meal for two at Café du Soleil and a very special Lecturers’ Moot poster, signed by the mooters and judges.

The Kent Law Campaign Student Committee would like to thank Fudge Kitchen, Nando’s, Subway and Café du Soleil for their very kind donations and congratulate the Kent Law Temple Society for its fantastic event – hopefully the first of many annual Lecturers’ Moots!

Freshers’ Quiz

Freshers’ Quiz

On Friday (28th September) the Kent Law Campaign Student Committee hosted a Freshers’ Quiz in Eliot College dining hall for first year law students at the University’s Canterbury campus.

The quiz followed a drinks reception and the Student Committee (along with some very helpful friends!) were out in full force to make sure as many freshers as possible stayed for the quiz.

Around 130 students took part in the quiz, devised by our quiz master YAG’s Daniel Malynn, which tested our knowledge on everything from Sports to the history of Canterbury and the University.

After a number of gruelling rounds, the contest came down to two teams who were tied in 1st place. The result was a tie-break question: “How much money, to the nearest pound, has the Kent Law Campaign raised so far?” Tense moments ensued, particularly as both teams gave the same answer! It became a question of “higher or lower” and (my team, I say with pride and perhaps a little bit of arrogance) Batman came out as the winners and took home a few bottles of wine and some chocolates.

We then drew a raffle with 5 very lucky winners receiving £20 vouchers for Blackwell’s bookshop.

The event was great  fun for all involved, and we managed to raise over £120 for the Campaign.
