The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1948

Law Faculty Club

Law Faculty Club

The object of the Law Faculty Club is the promotion, within the academic and social fields, of the welfare of the members of the Law Faculty. For the academic welfare of the club during 1947 two moots were held in the small Courtroom of the Supreme Court but they failed to receive the support that was expected from the club. More moots were planned, but unfortunately did not take place due to the apathy of members of the club. From a social point of view the past year was a success in that it saw the revival of the Annual Ball—this was held at the Majestic Cabaret on the 5th December last and was well attended by the legal confraternity.

For the current year 1948 the club's executive is planning an active season. It is intended to hold the Annual Ball in the early part of June so that full-time students will have an opportunity of attending this function which was denied them last year on account of the lath fixtures. Shortly after finals there will be the traditional dinner which in the past has patronised the Grand and which can now be almost regarded as binding and no longer a persuasive choice. For the academic welfare of Law students it is hoped to arrange talks by leading practitioners which would prove of the utmost interest and it is hoped they will be well patronised to ensure their continuance throughout the academic year. It is hoped to introduce a new system with the conduct of the moots to be held during the course of the year, the first of which was, in fact, held on the 3rd of May and was most interesting and instructive and also well attended, which is both encouraging and heartening.
