Welcome to Goldsmiths' Law Society!
My name is Alex Choi, and I am the President and Co-Founder of Goldsmiths Law Society (GLS).
Following the establishment of Goldsmiths Law School in 2019, it is with great honour that I serve you and the university as the inaugural President of GLS. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Department of Law and our wonderful GLS Committee Members who have dedicated an insurmountable effort to our cause. The Law Society would not be where it is today without their support.
Goldsmiths Law Society is an entirely student-driven organisation with intricate ties to the Department of Law. Working closely with our faculty, we are here to complement your experience with the law school, providing support through unique access to career development opportunities, coordination of mooting competitions, offering mentoring and publishing insightful magazines. Moreover, we hope to create a social platform for those interested in the career of law, whether or not you are enrolled to study law at Goldsmiths.
As the first President of the Law society, I take on the responsibility wholeheartedly to establish a strong stepping stone for the future of GLS and I will do my very best in realising the Law Society’s full potential alongside our Committee Members.
For the 2020-21 Academic Year, we are facing a unique and unprecedented circumstance due to the ongoing difficulties of COVID-19. Undoubtedly, normal university life is interrupted and building relationships have become more challenging. Despite such obstacles, however, we hope that the Law Society will be able to assist you in closing this gap, through various virtual interactions and support network. With sincere hopes that this difficult situation will be relieved shortly, I look forward to meeting each and every one of you face to face in the future.
Thank you for being part of the legacy and I look forward to embarking on this journey together with all of you.
President of Goldsmiths Law Society (2020 - 2021)
"Law school is a test – not a test of strength, creativity, or intelligence – but one of endurance. A law student’s greatest nemesis is not mastering legal concepts, but enduring the hours of solitude, which endless studying requires."
