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!
