BAHRIA UNIVERSITY LAW SOCIETY
Bahria University Law Society (BULS) is a student organization at Bahria University Law School in Bahria University Islamabad Campus. BULS allows students to plan and organize meaningful recreational events. Membership to the BULS is earned through a sincere commitment to the Society’s aims. The society is divided into various teams in order to improve the efficiency of the functions performed by it such as content writing team, logistics team, finance and security team, décor team etc. A head is appointed for each team who leads the team to perform their respective functions. Under the leadership of Ma’am Qurrat ul Ain Rehman (former head of BULS) the Society flourished considerably. Among other achievements of BULS, the most significant one is that with the consistent efforts of its members the society managed to draft its own Code. The Code is a comprehensive governing document of the Society that covers each and every aspect of how society will be managed with a proper procedure of amendments. The main objective of BULS is to provide a platform of friendship, personal growth, career development and university inclusiveness to students and help them acquire skills and talents that they are not able to learn or develop through normal third level education.
