President's Address

Dear All,

Welcome to the official Cambridge University Law Society (CULS) website. I am Rebecca McNeill, and I will be your CULS President for the academic year 2020-21.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you on behalf of our society. Founded in 1901, CULS is one of the largest, oldest and most active societies in Cambridge. Over the years, CULS’ activities have both grown and diversified; we run a vast array of social, career and speaker events, manage Pro Bono projects, organise world class moots, and host two staple events on the Cambridge calendar: the Law Ball and Lent Gala. We even have our own termly publication and blog – Per Incuriam.

We are delighted to be celebrating our 120th anniversary during this academic year. I believe that this provides a great opportunity to reflect on the great work of the society in recent years. Some highlights include the establishment of our Alumni and Non-Law departments along with the development of our new bespoke app and website. We look forward to celebrating the last 120 years of CULS this year and have some exciting plans in store!

It cannot be ignored that this coming academic year will be different due to the unprecedented circumstances of COVID 19 . As lectures move online, CULS hopes to maintain the great sense of camaraderie within the Cambridge Law community through our active social media platforms (Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram) and mailing list. We plan to host our familiar packed calendar of events with adaptations to ensure that they are safe, whether they be in person or online.

We would also like to thank our current and new sponsors for their generous support to our society. We look forward to working with every one of you in the coming year.

To our members- thank you for your continued support of CULS. I hope you are all well and look forward to seeing you all at events during the coming year!

Rebecca McNeill
CULS President 2020-21
