Black Law Society

Like and Follow Us on:




At De Montfort University and wanting to better yourself, your CV and the lives of those around you?

Then we'd like to welcome you to the Society of Black Law Students (SBLS) a.k.a. The Black Law Society. Here we are dedicated to addressing racial inequality both within the education system and greater society. With your membership, we can have another incredible voice in the already huge conversation on race, its effects and how we can go about improving the lives of people of colour. 

We are a somewhat new society here at DMU but that hasn't stopped us putting our foot firmly through the door. Since establishing ourselves as a society just over a year ago we have held and attended conferences addressing the BAME attainment gap, spoke on knife crime, been invited to attend the Midlands Asian Lawyers Association (MALA) Annual Ball and kick-started some incredible work for the Roma community in partnership with the Students' Union and Decolonising DMU. These projects are just some of the great opportunities you can involved with to enrich your CV, HEAR report and better the world.

COVID times have made life very difficult, but the SBLS has adapted and continued to run projects and innovate. Don't wait until we get back to normality, you can get involved today!

We value you and want to give you a voice, come and join the SBLS!

"I was initially so nervous about joining the Black Law Society, the idea of going into a room with so many new people terrified me. But once I was there everyone was just so lovely, they were genuinely interested in what I had to say and nobody went unheard. I have since got involved in so many amazing projects that will definitely set me apart from other candidates when I apply for jobs in the future!" - SBLS Member

If you do decide you want to join us or are even a bit unsure, make sure to follow us on Instagram (@dmublacklawsociety) to keep up to date with any and all opportunities and events we will be running!
