Pan African Law (PALS)

Welcome to the Pan-African Law Society (PALS)!

PALS was founded in 2014 under the vision of “Law for Development”. Our mission is to broaden accessibility to the legal profession for African and Afro-Caribbean students in Leicester. Your time at University is a great time for you to grow holistically; our society is predicated on developing its members socially, academically and professionally. After a dormancy in the pandemic, we would love for you to be a part of our revival year!

Considering a career in law can feel daunting – particularly without the connections or knowledge on how to establish one. Our goal is to support African and Afro-Caribbean students that plan to practice law in the UK or back home – and to provide you with community whilst doing so. This year, we plan to run a host of events, socials and workshops that will enrich your time at Leicester and prepare you for life afterwards!

We plan to run the following events in the coming year:

  • PALS Panel & Networking Event: meet and engage with African and Afro-Caribbean Leicester alumni excelling in the UK legal sector.
  • PALS Heading Home Workshop: learn from leading African & Afro-Caribbean legal professionals how to return and excel in your career back at home.
  • Socials: Games nights, Activities days & Collaborations with other Societies
  • Come Dine with Me: wellbeing-centric communal cook-along of African & Afro-Caribbean cuisine
  • PALS Chat: Debate and discussions on the intersection of social issues, cultural norms and the law – in Africa, the Caribbean and the UK

What are you waiting for? With a membership for only £5, join today!
