The Law Society currently has two sports teams for students of any ability to get involved in, Netball and Badminton. These teams are open to all within the Law Faculty and beyond and compete in the intramural leagues and various other tournaments.
Sports teams within the Law Society are a great way to get to know more people within law, build friendships and seek advice from students in other years. In addition to regular exercise and a welcomed break from the books, the relaxed but strong team spirit during matches and socials are a great way to develop those communication and teamwork skills sought after by employers. The Committee assists with obtaining sponsorship from local law firms for friendly games and team kits. This also creates great networking opportunities between firms and team members.

The Annual Banners Tournament
In the Spring, we hold the annual charity Banners Tournament in honour and memory of Arijit Banerjee, a former student of our Law Faculty who sadly passed away in 2001 after battling mental health issues.
The Banners Tournament usually consists of netball, football and rugby, although this varies year to year. This is a fantastic event to raise money for charity and bring together students of all disciplines, staff, and firms to support a great cause.
