Law Society and Journal

The St Andrews Law Journal is a student led publication designed to offer students and staff access to a variety of articles, reviews, and analyses in the field of law and legal humanities. Editions of the journal will engage with issues including precedent, case law, and interrogate historical interpretations of socio-legal concepts, such as justice. Our intention is to provide a platform for students to critically engage with law both as a study medium and future career path, a collaborative space between pre-existing and future groups focused on analysing and discussing legal matters.

Whether a student of History, or of Economics, International Relations, Science, Divinity – our creed is ‘ever to excel’ – we believe that this is best achieved together, with a fervent desire for discovery.

We hope to inspire our contributors and readers alike to be daring with their inquiries into the ever-changing nature of law, exploring its evolution, and its greatest innovators.

The University of St Andrews Law Society is open to all students of the University who want to learn more or pursue a career in law. While the University of St Andrews does not have a law faculty, we are there to fill the void. Our dedicated committee works together with our incredible sponsors to link the University of St Andrews and the larger legal community. Every semester we invite speakers, organise trips, hold socials, and provide support for undergraduates. Members of the society come from all over the world and from all tracks of life, but are united by a common interest in the law.
