Societies

Edge Hill University Law Students’ Society

Edge Hill University’s Law Students’ Society (EHULSS) is a student led organisation created for and by law students.

EHULSS has a strong presence in the Department of Law and Criminology, and has a series of events planned for its members throughout the year. This helps new and existing students to enjoy the full experience of university life. Follow them on Twitter.

Edge Hill University Policing Society

Edge Hill University Policing Society (EHUPS) is an up and coming student led society that is new to the Department of Law and Criminology.

Our aim is to bring policing students together, and our main goal is to get as many of the policing students involved as possible. We have several events organised throughout the year. We want all students to make the most of their Edge Hill University experience, and we want to share this experience together.

“Studying Law at Edge Hill has given me one of the greatest opportunities of my life – to work with people affected by the Windrush scandal. These are people that immigrated to the UK after the Second World War and are now struggling to prove their (and their descendants’) right to live here – even if they were born in the UK. I’m part of a volunteer team that works alongside law professionals to help people understand their rights, apply for citizenship and claim compensation under the Windrush Schemes.”

“Every time I go to a lecture I learn something new – your mind just opens up and the world become a bit bigger. I think I’ve found myself since I’ve been here. I’m so much more confident. My whole family can see the difference in me. I used to find it hard to speak out about social justice issues, I was just too scared, but now you can’t shut me up! Coming to Edge Hill is the best thing I’ve ever done.”

“Realistic is the best word to describe the training I’ve had at Edge Hill so far. The university has a ‘Crime House’ on campus to mock up crime scenes and practice policing techniques. It is an amazing facility and part of it has been designed to look like a police station with a mock custody suite, a cell and interview rooms that have both audio and cameras. The rest has been designed as a domestic house so that it can be used to carry out crime scene investigations.”

I’m the President and Founder of the Edge Hill Politics Society and through this I have made friends with people from all political backgrounds. The key to this is engaging in healthy and sensible debate, as well as having a mutual respect for each other. That’s one of the good things about studying here, you can voice your opinion without fear of being criticised, attacked or shut down.”
