Volunteer Registration

We welcome committed law students who would like to gain meaningful experience with the goal of developing key legal skills. Coupled with assisting the members of trade unions, you will receive employment law training, which is invaluable to your development as a solicitor or barrister.

The TUS is a student led organisation, that does  not charge for student membership. To demonstrate commitment, all new members are required to complete our vetting and training process prior to being connected with a union to start pro bono work.

If you are interested in joining the TUS, please complete the application form below and a member of the team will be in touch.

Trade Union Society



The TUS aims to be an inclusive, distinctive, socially sustainable, and impactful organisation.

Inclusive – We are inclusive to all prospective and current law students.

Distinctive – We seek to liaise with trade unions with the objective of supporting their members. The support provided leads to the procurement of legal work experience for the Society’s volunteers on an indiscriminate basis.

Socially sustainable – The achievement of social cohesion through the Society’s visibility on social media platforms as a means of nurturing its growth in terms of membership and our network of unions.

Impactful – Through the commitment of our volunteers, we aim to improve access to justice for the marginalised members of our trade union networks, while creating a community of future solicitors and barristers who adopts a holistic approach to the maintenance of the rule of law.
