EFWiL Shelf Indulgence Book Club

One thing law students tell us often is they don’t make enough time for non-legal reading. Some don’t even read non-law materials until after they graduate! By bringing together current students and legal professionals we wanted to give permission to our law students to read outwith their course, and help our professionals to connect with students still on-course. Sharing books and ideas around books can be so powerful – what will you discover?

The EFWiL Shelf Indulgence book club will read three books together between February and June 2022. These books are funded by the Edinburgh Foundation for Women in Law (EFWiL) and you will receive a free copy (paperback or eBook) of each book that we read. The first book we will read is Baroness Helena Kennedy’s Eve Was Framed: Women and British Justice. For our subsequent reads, we will take a look at your sign up suggestions and let you guide our direction.

Please note: You must sign-up using your university or organisation email address.

The dates of our virtual book discussions are:

  • Wednesday 23rd February, 1-2pm
  • Wednesday 20th April, 1-2pm
  • Wednesday 29th June, 1-2pm

Places in the club are limited and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

If we are over-subscribed we will prioritise those who consider themselves to be widening participation students. We define this fairly broadly, so if you’re not sure if you fit the criteria listed under ‘WP Individuals’ then just get in touch and we can advise.

Registration is via Eventbrite.
