Launch of The College Law Society

The College launched their very own Law Society and to kick things off Professor Bradley Slade speaks about the South African government's response to COVID-19, from a legal standpoint.

 

The Law Society at Bishops is the newest and one of the most vibrant societies on campus. The immediate objective of the Society is to promote itself within the ranks of the boys and to continually formulate it’s long term ‘heritage goals’. Beyond this year, the Society aims to provide a wide selection of both social and educational trips and events.

Being a member of the Law Society and attending these meetings and events is an excellent way to meet boys with an interest in the law, and who would possibly like to pursue a legal career. The Society will also engage with the OD to create learning and networking opportunities.

The values which drive the Law Society are entrenched in the Constitution of South Africa, and the value system which is celebrated by Bishops. The Law Society aims to promote the Bill of Rights within the school while engaging in learning opportunities for the boys, within a legal context.

The Law Society committee is made up of representatives from every grade.

  • The Law Society’s events include:
  • Moot Court Session 
  • Hosting legal experts as keynote speakers
  • A trip to the Cape High Court
  • Career talks
  • Practical sessions: Drafting legal documents, etc.
  • The Annual Law Society Dinner
