Lögrétta – The Law Students' Organisation of RU
The goal of Lögrétta is mainly to enhance academic work in the legal field both inside and outside the School of Law.
Lögrétta protects the interests of its members and functions as a contact between law students and the administrators of the School of Law. The president of Lögrétta looks out for the interests of law students at School meetings which he attends on their behalf.
The Lögrétta Debate Society operates under the auspices of Lögrétta and holds debate meetings on those legal issues most prominent at any given time. Lögrétta also publishes the Lögrétta Journal which is a reviewed legal journal.
Lögrétta furthermore organises various fun activities for students with the main events being the Lögrétta Day and the annual celebration in addition to almost weekly trips to companies and institutions.
Lögrétta was established on 8 March 2003.
