Law Forum

KCL Law Forum is the representative body of King's College London's Dickson Poon School of Law.
 
Democratically elected by King's law students, our goal is to give law students as valuable and enjoyable a time at King's College London as possible. We achieve this by tackling key student issues, promoting student welfare to the Law School and University, and hosting events and projects for the Law School's community.

Meetings
Each year, students within the Law School elect a set of student representatives. These representatives gather issues raised by the students they represent, and raises them at monthly meetings with the Law Forum Committee. The Committee then focuses the issues raised by the Law Forum Representatives, and takes them forward to enact real, collaborative change with the Law School.

Projects
The Law Forum also runs a series of projects and initiatives for the benefit of law students at King’s. Managed and developed by teams of Law Forum representatives, these projects enable the Forum to host events, improve student experience and develop the Forum as a student organisation.

The Law Families Project

The “Law Families Project” pairs 1st years with 2nd and 3rd year students (“Law Parents”) to form support groups that will last throughout the year. Whether you feel completely lost in the face of your studies, apprehensive in this new learning environment, or just plain excited to learn about this wonderful city and all it has to offer, your Law Parent will be a great point of contact.
