GULS events have always been one of the biggest parts of the society and this year is set to be no exception. We have several exciting academic events along with numerous social events, in association with our sponsor club Viper. Check back as the year progresses for further information and even more events!
Fresher's Fayre Welcome Drinks
Wednesday 14th September 2016
Coopers -> Viper
GULS want to show freshers to what social life as a GULS member is like from the outset, so it is only natural to introduce an icebreaker event during fresher's week! Pop along and say hello at the Fresher's Fayre and then join us in Cooper's to meet new friends or even just to have a drink with old ones.
Cheese & Wine
Wednesday 21st September 2016
GUU Debates Chamber -> Viper
Cheese and Wine is one of our most famous events, and is a great way to start the year. With our sponsor club Viper just minutes away from the GUU you can be sure no time will be wasted in making our new freshers feel at home, and welcoming back all current members.
A great way to meet people in other years and to familiarise yourself with the new committee.
Secondhand Book Sale
Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th September 2016
Birdie Library, GUU
One of the worst things about studying law is by far getting a hold of the books. They can be horrendously hard to find in the library (especially in a large class) and buying them new or on amazon is extortionate.
Luckily we here at GULS want to help you save (or make) as much money as possible, so we present you with our first semester secondhand book sale! It is by far the best way to get books on campus at an affordable price.
Field Day & Family Ties
Wednesday 28th September 2016
It's true that you can't pick your family, but here at GULS we like to make sure you have a second home whilst studying with us. But this year we have decided to put a little twist on our annual Family Ties Pub Crawl - it will follow from our Field Day (following the success of last year's event.)
This is a brilliant opportunity to meet other students from different years, work with them in teams and gives you a great network of people to ask about what lies ahead at law school. Further information about how to apply, prizes and venues will be provided in due course
Bubbles & Truffles
Thursday 6th October 2016
Sir Charles Wilson Building
Back for a third year is the GULS Bubbles & Truffles Networking Evening!
Following the previous success of this event in the last two years, we are hoping to make it bigger and better than ever before. With several big name firms already confirmed this event is not to be missed. It is an invaluable networking opportunity and the most important event of the year when thinking about what you want from your future. This event is ticketed and is likely to sell out so please keep an eye on this page, as well as the Facebook and the Twitter, to ensure you don't miss out.
If you have any questions, or would like to appear at Bubbles & Truffles please contact our Vice-President Academic, at email@example.com
Wednesday Unreasonableness / First Year Hustings!
Wednesday 12th October 2016
Are you a fresher who has loved everything that GULS has offered you so far? Are you outgoing, a bit of a laugh and up for a challenge? Are you simply an older student who loves a free GULS bar?
Then you definitely must join us for Wednesday Unreasonableness!
This is our first year hustings where we elect First Year Representatives to sit on the GULS Committee! This is your chance to have a say in the running of the society and gain loads of new skills and friends. Being on the committee is excellent for your CV and gives you tons of opportunities to progress and move further up in the society. We all agree it is the best thing you will do while at University.
In usual GULS style, to provide support and give you a bit of Dutch Courage, we will be providing yet another FREE BAR for all!
More information about applications will be available closer to the time. However, if you have any questions about running for election, please send them to our President, Alasdair McCrone at firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday 22 October 2016
Every year, the Law Societies from the Universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee come together to compete in the Pinsent Masons Inter-Varsity Cup. Teams from each university compete in Hockey, Football, Rugby, Basketball and Netball over the course of a tournament hosted at one of the 4 universities.This is the 4th year of the tournament and GULS is very keen to show the other Scottish Universities why Glasgow is the place to be! It should be a great event so make sure you are available to play for the day if you are playing in one of our GULS teams, and more importantly remember to bring your A-game.
Our Sports Convenor will establish sports teams close to the start of the year, and these are a great way to meet people from other years, as well as an excellent way to relieve any and all law related stress (plus, we hear they have excellent nights out)! More information will be provided at the start of term, but if you have any questions about Inter-Varsity please feel free to contact our Sports Convenor, Alasdair MacDonald, at email@example.com
The GULS Subcrawl!
Wednesday 9th November 2016
GUU Beer Bar -> Viper (with plenty of stops on the way!)
Glasgow Subcrawls are infamous, and GULS knows how its done. So join us for this classic event, which will both familiarise you with the subway stops and rid you of those mid semester blues.
After some careful censoring of the more colourful subway stations, we will provide a venue and a drink for each of the chosen stations and will see you all in Viper to round off the night. Keep an eye on our social networks closer to the time for the list of stops and associated beverages!
GULS Charity Quiz Night
Wednesday 17th November 2016
Here at GULS we understand the importance of giving back to the community. So join us in November to reminisce from the Subcrawl earlier in the month, and raise some money for charity!
Welcome Back Social
GUU Beer Bar -> Viper
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and the first event back after Christmas never disappoints. Make sure you don't miss this Law family reunion, we have big plans to welcome you back!
The Second Hand Book Sale
2017 (Date TBC)
It's that time of year again! You know the drill, in order to save you precious pennies for our 2015 socials make sure you're ready to buy and sell at our Second Hand Book Sale.
Pinsent Masons Careers Pub Quiz
This is a great event run by one of our biggest sponsors, and is particularly useful for those looking to apply for summer placements - because Pinsent's are looking to scout out keen candidates at events like this. Keep an eye on our social networks for information on how to register for this event.
The Law Ball
The Law Ball is always the biggest event in the GULS Calendar and this year is set to be no exception. Planning is already underway to provide you with a night to remember so start planning your outfit and most importantly, save the date!
