Student Societies

Here at Northumbria we endeavour to make sure you have the best student experience. To help achieve this, there are a range of student societies to get involved with during your time at Northumbria.


Northumbria Bar Society

Our Bar Society is for everyone.

It’s for those beginning their legal journey and are questioning the roles of barrister or solicitor, for those on the Bar course having chosen, it’s also for alumni and university staff, all are welcome.

This year, supporting our student members is a vital part of the society. We know law school is hard and the bar course specifically, so we will have separate Bar course specific and all year’s revision sessions, regular ‘Wellbeing and Working’ drop ins, to come to chill and relax or work amongst friends and dedicated wellbeing representatives to speak to.

Networking events will be an essential part of the legal journey, we will be running workshops on how to make the most of these along with the events themselves which will involve meeting Barristers and judges. Inn of Court sessions, will assist in understanding the differences and application processes. There will be application and interview workshops to help with preparing applications, following up and dealing with rejections.

Finally, We want you all to be involved, so once you sign up, join our Facebook group ( to keep updated and to pop down any ideas or feedback you have for us.
