2019/20 Committee

President

Zoe Hunt

I am Zoe, President of the Law Society and third year law student. My aspiration to join the Committee has been more than just organising the same events the society always has; it has been about wanting to give members the best possible start to their career, establishing connections that directly enable them to pursue their chosen pathway and enabling them to develop themselves in order to be in the best stead for obtaining crucial experience in the profession. Along the way, the society will support its members by providing a vital outlet for character building and socialising to match the work life balance achieved by those in the profession. Members will play sports competitively with our sponsoring firms, network in an informal environment with professionals, build their skills in negotiation and commercial awareness workshops, write winning applications with guidance from the industry professionals and have fun whilst extending their peer circles in what can be regarded as a clique-prone course.

Vice President

Gemma Wilson

I am a second-year law student, desiring to pursue a career as a solicitor. I am highly ambitious and driven, committed to using my role as Vice President to make the society more useful and valued by members, through organizing and delivering innovative ideasand pathways to achieve the very best results. I am keen to develop a culture of transparency and teamwork within the society and modernize it using consistent branding and by ensuring the provision of interesting events that help our members and are inclusive. I want to make sure the committee and our members feel that they can exceed their aims and that the society can function effectively

Secretary

Hannah Farbon

I am pursuing a career in commercial law as a final year law student. As Secretary, I want to support my fellow Committee members by contributing to event planning and social media marketing. For 2019/20 I have redesigned and relaunched our Society website and despite having no web design background, I couldn't be more pleased with how it has turned out. I work closely with the Inns of Court Secretary, Rachel Greig,  to create the academic and social calendar for the year and also when we are running joint society events. Another part to my role is tackling the administrative tasks such as amending the Constitution and creating risk assessments. 

 

Stay tuned for member merchandise which will be coming shortly and involves some new designs for 2019/20! 

Communications Officer

Alexandra McCulloch

I am Alex, a second-year law student, eager to pursue a career as a solicitor. As this year’s communications officer I have the role of making the Law Society accessible to members through its presence on social media. Through this I aspire to provide efficient communication with regular updates in order to keep members well informed of upcoming events and opportunities. In addition to this I aim to create consistency across all platforms to reach all of our members -especially our incoming first years.

Treasurer

Ella Scammell

I am a second-year law student with aims to pursue a career as a solicitor. As treasurer, my aims are to use my skills and experience of accounting and financial management to promote clarity and coherence with regards to the finance of the society. I would like to use my role to ensure the society can reach its full potential and contribute to the growth and efficiency of the society by contributing to planning and organising exciting events for our members

Social Secretary

Holly Chapell

I am a second-year law student, wanting to pursue a career in the legal sector. I am highly motivated, hard-working and well organised whilst being a strong team player. These skills come in great use when planning our main events with the social secretaryof Inns of Court. The events we provide enable everyone to come together to celebrate their successes at the end of the semesters and importantly to have fun and socialise. I am keen to expand our social events throughout the year as well, especially in freshers week. I would like to plan a variety of events where everyone can get involved and get to know each other in order to make our society welcoming and friendly. For example, pub crawls, quiz nights, cocktail evenings, bowling, and dessert dates. I want to use my platform to ensure that people are able to de-stress and make lifelong friends at university!

Outreach Officer

Kieran Spellman 

I am a second-year law student aspiring to pursue a career in Corporate Law. I am an ambitious individual with an avid interest in the commercial world. I am keen to utilise my position as Outreach Officer to help elevate the society as a recognisable and prestigious organisation that facilitates and maximises career opportunities for all of its members. Also enhancing communications and associations with illustrious law firms through gaining sponsorships and relationship building. I will aid the committee in organising a myriad of different opportunities and events, emerging the society as a profitable investment for all of its members.

Amelia Ward

I am a third-year law student aspiring to pursue a career in the legal profession. I am a highly motivated and diligent individual, committed to my role as Negotiation Officer to make negotiating a skill that all members of the Law Society obtain to a high level. I am keen to ensure that all students feel welcomed and confident to partake in negotiation activities including our annual Negotiation Competition.

Sports Representatives

Lucas Moran and Emily Venning

I am Lucas and I am in my secondyear of law at Southampton and aspiring to become a practicing solicitor following my studies. As a sports representative, I am committed to making society sport more accessible to all students on the course by widening the range of sports available to students. I am extremely passionate about sport enriching the experience of law students at university and I aim to increase its exposure through a regular social media presence that can truly celebrate the talents of those in the society.

I am currently a third-year law student and have the role this year of sports rep. I am committed to increasing female involvement in sport to increase both physical and mental health of those around me as law can seem overwhelming at the best of times. I am still unsure as to whether I will pursue a career in law or not, butI am open to any opportunities that come my way. My main priority is to increase inclusion and make sure everyone is as happy as they can be whilst studying law and advertise sport as being a welcome break to our studies.

Commercial Awareness Officer

Maya Peat

My name is Maya and I am a second-year student. Although from Canada, I came here to study and pursue a career in law as I believe the opportunities are unrivalled. I have taken on the new role of Commercial Awareness Officer. Throughout first year I realised the importance of knowing what is happening in the world and how that affects law firms and their particular practice areas. I hope this year, to introduce as many students, both law and non-law, to this crucial area in a fun andinformative way. This could be through informal activities such as workshops and quiz nights or more formal events such as competitions. Developing a close relationship with firms would allow for students to gain a better understanding of exactly what commercial awareness means and how they can improve theirs
