Lawyers Without Borders

External Engagement

The Lawyers Without Borders Southampton Student Division is a student run group in affiliation with the non-profit organisation Lawyers Without Borders, formed to promote and further their work.

Lawyers Without Borders is a charity that seeks to integrate skilled pro bono lawyers into rule of law programming designed to improve the integrity of the legal process around the world (www.lwob.org). The society works with LWOB on research projects, fundraise for them and promote opportunities in the human rights and legal field.

The society will thus work with Lawyers Without Borders on research projects, fundraise for them and promote volunteering and internships in the protection of rights field.

We aim to raise awareness about the importance of helping countries going through, or recovering from, conflict to develop a sound judicial process and improve the link between the organisation's objectives and students who can continue to further their work. We look out for and help develop the passion and career paths of students who seek a future or have a keen interest in international human rights, civil liberties and pro bono work.

Debating Union

Political, Social Awareness & Campaigns

We run weekly debates which are free to attend and open to everyone. In the last year we have had the pleasure of welcoming several high profile speakers to these events, including former MP and Government Minister Sir Vince Cable, Spokesperson for the Israeli Embassy Yiftah Curiel and leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron. We also run training sessions to educate people in debating, improve their skills at public speaking and formulating arguments, and prepare them for inter-university competitions.
