The Pod Cup is a first year initiative that consists of a list of challenges for each pod to attempt during the first few weeks of Autumn session. The aim of the Pod Cup is to increase interaction between first year law students and their peers, as well as the Law Students’ Society. To show completion of Pod Cup challenges please send videos, photos, and other appropriate forms of evidence to firstname.lastname@example.org or on the form found on this page. You will find more information by checking out our First Year Guide.
