UKCLE Essay Competition for undergrads

The UKCLE annual essay comp deadline is 12th March – make sure you get your entry in to be in with a chance of winning a Dell laptop (as well as the obvious fame). The big question to be addressed this year (in 1000 words) is:

How might a legal education enable students to contribute to the improvement of society?

Any answer would need to address the following:

•What do you consider to be the key challenges facing society in the 21st century and how can lawyers contribute to meeting these challenges?
•Will law and the way in which lawyers are educated and trained need to change in order to meet these challenges in your opinion?
•Are there aspects of our society which you will be more equipped to improve as a result of having a legal education?
•What has your experience been to date – is there anything that has particularly stood out for you in your course that you feel has given you knowledge and/or skills to enable you to have a positive impact on society?
