The Law Council is The Dickson Poon School of Law’s Student-Staff Liaison Committee. Made up of representatives from each year group across LLB and PGT programmes, the Law Council acts as the 'student voice', identifying areas of good practice, opportunities for development, and need for improvement in the teaching and learning experience. The Law Council meets at least twice a semester with key and senior members of the law academic faculty and Professional Services staff to voice arising matters which are affecting the student experience.
Members of the Law Council also sit on various other committees within the School such as the School Education Committee, Student, Culture and Community Committee, and the Postgraduate Sub-Committee. In doing so they help determine how the curriculum delivery develops over time.
Each year the Law Council conducts its annual survey for which its members compose the questions that they believe need asking. The survey results are compiled and passed to the School which composes a formal response and action plan.
The Law Council runs the School's peer support network, known as the Law Families project which pairs incoming first year undergraduates with second and third year students to help them settle in to university life.
Each year the Council organises various events, such as mixers, festive occasions and debates.
