The Conference is approaching its 43rd year and is run by a committee of Law undergraduates from various Colleges at the University of Cambridge. Being chosen to join the Committee in our first year, we remain part of the Conference until our third year, each year taking on more responsibility before eventually becoming President, Vice-President or Treasurer.

Whilst we are supported logistically by the Faculty of Law and our partner Colleges, all events are organised and run exclusively by us - the Conference takes around nine months to a year to plan!

 
Ben King  | PRESIDENT    Hi, my name’s Ben and I’m a third-year lawyer at Christ’s.  this year, I’m president of the Conference and so I oversee the organisation of the conference and make sure everyone else is doing their job.  Attending the conference in 2015 convinced me that both law and cambridge were right for me, and i hope you have as equally a fantastic week as i had. in my free time you’ll find me in the gym or in cindies or life.

asha phakey  | Vice-President/Treasurer    Hi – My name is Asha and I’m a third-year lawyer at Downing College.  this year I'm the Vice-President of the conference, and I'm responsible for handling all of the finances and accounts. I'm also in charge of maintaining relationships with our alumni. We have ex-committee members and ex-delegates stretching back for over 40 years. I attended the conference in 2015 and it definitely gave me a valuable insight into what living in halls is like. In my spare time I play lacrosse, football and hockey and captain the college netball team.
