We are grateful for all of the support offered to us by our alumni community. Your support is immensely valuable to our school and students.

Inspire and support current students

Alumni support can include:

  • attending events
  • career mentoring
  • supporting pro-bono projects
  • offering scholarships

These opportunities give you a way to reconnect with your old classmates. They inspire and support current students in their career.

Pro bono and community projects

We have a proud tradition of working within the local community. Our students receive recognition for their work at the:

  • Northern Law Awards
  • Pride of Newcastle Awards (Street Law)

Our students are a dedicated group. They put in the time and work to ensure our projects have continued to run since 2011.

Our pro bono projects enable students to practice skills developed in the classroom.

You can support our pro bono schemes in many ways:

Scholarships

We are grateful for the ongoing support given by our alumni community. This support allows us to offer some funding opportunities to students.

North East Law Review

The North East Law Review (NELR) is led by members of:

  • Newcastle University Law Society
  • Newcastle University Bar Society

It is a journal to showcase the best of our students' work. It's also a blog that aims to invite discussion and debate on the latest issues in law.

The editorial committee welcomes submissions from alumni of the following types of content:

  • blog posts on the latest developments in any areas of law (1,000 – 2,000 words)
  • case summaries of the latest key cases
  • panel discussions
  • seminar/workshop/symposium recordings
  • podcasts, which might discuss a key case or development

Our students plan to go forward into the workplace. They want to keep up with sector specific developments and develop commercial awareness. The committee also welcomes blog posts from alumni that cover these topics.
