WHY JOIN THE RUNNYMEDE SOCIETY?
We provide funding for debates, symposia, and panel discussions with external speakers and refreshments. We are able to assist with reaching out to speakers and fund out-of-town speaker travel expenses.
We host regular networking events with local members of the legal profession, academics, journalists, and other students
We aim to connect first-year students with upper-years who can provide mentorship and academic guidance, as well as course summaries.
In 2016, we founded the Runnymede Society as a national student membership organization dedicated to exploring the ideas and ideals of constitutionalism, liberty and the rule of law. We provide outstanding support and opportunities for intellectual enrichment, networking, and professional development, including by providing members opportunities to meet and enrich their legal knowledge with professors, practitioners, and judges.
