The Aspiring Solicitors society at UoB intend to implement this same mantra at our University. Through putting on a number of events and activities throughout the year, such as commercial awareness workshops, mock interviews, and skill specific talks, we aim help put you in the best position possible for your legal career.
We want to be more than just a society.We want to help everyone embrace their differences - as you will always be the best version of you! Diversity in the legal sector will not happen overnight, but here at AS we are committed to taking the necessary steps to ensure that this goal is achieved sooner rather than later.
The society is open to all students, regardless of your degree background and membership is only £3 for the year!
We look forward to helping you achieve your potential.

To ensure that you get what you need from us, when you need it, we have created a set of promises which we will always aim to deliver.
Every year, you elect fellow students to your Officer Team, who represent you and lead your union. Each Officer has their own roles and remit which you can view below. You have a chance to make sure your elected Officers are doing what they said they will, by attending Officer Question Time held each term.
