President's Address

Dear Members,

Welcome back!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter break and feels refreshed and ready for exam term. For Freshers facing Easter term for the first time, definitely do not panic. While it is long and drawn out (so make sure to pace yourselves), and it feels like there is more to memorise than is humanly possible, everyone gets through it, and everyone always goes into the exams knowing a lot more than they think they do. Make sure you take a look at this term’s Per Incuriam magazine — it is an invaluable resource filled with top tips for the law tripos exams, legal updates, and model essay answers to help you in your revision.

I would also like to introduce the new CULS committee for this year. I am incredibly excited to be working with Sophie (Vice-President), Cara (Treasurer) and Charmaine (Secretary) as well as our fantastic appointed committee. We are working on a lot of ambitious projects to enhance what CULS membership offers you. This includes an app that will be launched at the start of Michaelmas, which will provide you with quick access to information about events, recently published articles and a compendium of all of CULS’s sponsors, closer links with our alumni and many new and exciting careers and social events for Michaelmas and Lent term next year. Keep an eye on the CULS Facebook page and newsletter for updates.

The highlight event of Easter term for CULS is always our Garden Party, and our Socials Secretaries and Garden Party committee have been busily planning over the holidays what looks to be an incredible event. I look forward to seeing lots of you there.

Best of luck for exams!

Lucia Azzi

CULS President 2017-18
