Welcome to the sports section of the Law Society’s website. This is the third year that the Law Society’s sports teams have been running and we are proud of the progress we have made in relation to team sizes, training sessions and fixtures. We would like you to know that experience isn’t necessary as people of all abilities are welcome to join the sports teams.


What We’ve Done


The law society currently has a well-established netball and football team. Both teams have weekly training sessions on campus and have taken part in matches against university college teams, other non-law societies and a Law firm.  Interest in both teams has grown exponentially, with a average turnout of 14 students at every football training session.

A big event undertaken by the sports teams took place in February 2018, where both sports teams competed against DLA Piper’s Leeds office. This event allowed for the sports teams to get to know each other as well as partake in a networking event which allowed us students to gain an insight into the Firm.

What We Plan to Do This Year

This year we plan to maintain the size and success of our sports teams whilst promoting them in order to maximise turnouts and improve the frequency of match fixtures.

Alongside this, we also plan on bringing in Sports Society socials to enable teams to build strong relationships and have a great time off the court and outside of the lecture theatre!


An exciting event we are currently planning is a netball and football tournament with four of our sponsors. This promises to be an amazing event with the opportunity to socialise and get to know about the firm's you could be working for one day!
