GULS is planning a charity night within the next month to raise money for the sister of one of our law students, who was in a tragic car accident a few months ago. She suffered damage to 70% of the left hemisphere of her brain, and doctors expected her not to pull through. Fighting to stay alive and recover, she has been in intensive care since her accident. She is likely to remain in hospital for the next year at the very least, which is causing a considerable strain, both emotionally and financial for her family.
Issue one for semester two of our recently revamped newsletter, now titled The Panopticon, has just been released.

Do please check it out here now or soonish.

Reaching the halfway point of your Law degree is a glorious milestone, a milestone which GULS has a proud tradition of celebrating in the form of the annual Halfway Dinner.
The Halfway Dinner allows students to sit down with their cohort and reflect on how far they have come, and celebrate what they have achieved in their degrees. It is also a good opportunity to look to the future, and contemplate the years to come. But hey, you've reached the halfway hurdle, and its all smooth sailing from here!*
Rebecca West’s cyclamens provide a departure point for some explorations of the ways in which international criminal justice might be characterized as a dialogue between its technocratic grammars (“legalism”) and a style - sometimes literary, sometimes visceral - that gives voice to its founding passions.
