Below is a list of some of the student activities at the Law Faculty as well as the University.
A complete list of student organizations is only available in Danish
Law Students' organisations
The Law Student Organisations arrange many social events during the semester. This is a place where you can get to know some of the Danish law students:
Casus Clima is an organization for law students working to create a knowledge-sharing and knowledge-developing forum in the field of climate and environmental law. Casus Clima organizes lectures, debate sessions, and trips to companies and organizations, just as Casus Clima works to promote sustainable initiatives at the Faculty of Law. The organization is also a social forum that seeks to unite students at the Faculty across years and nationalities.
Juridisk Diskussionsklub (Law Debating Club)
It is a non-political law debating association. J.D. arranges tours to prisons, courts, ministries etc. but it is also a social club arranging parties for law student as well as the Friday Bar.Webpage (In Danish): www.jdku.dk

Lex Loci is an International Student Association at the Faculty of Law. While Lex Loci is open for all students it primarily focuses on the specific needs of international L.LM students as well as exchange students. The association organizes a variety of academic (course fairs, seminars, meet-ups with lecturers), career (career fairs) and social (Friday bar, pub quiz, trips and excursions,) events. All the events are held in English.
The Student House (Studenterhuset) is in the centre of Copenhagen (Købmagergade 52, right next to the Round Tower) and is a place where students from different faculties can meet, study and have a good time.
During the week the Student House puts on a range of activities such as debates, quiz-night, gay-day, live music and an International Café. Every Wednesday night during the semester there is an International Café in the Student House, an event which is hugely popular both among Danish and international students.
Sports and fitness
The university sports club offers a lot of activities. If you are interested in doing sports while you are studying at the University of Copenhagen, we encourage you to make use of their offer. It is cheap compared to joining other clubs and it is a good way to socialise with Danish and other international students in an informal way.
Employees and students at the University also gets discounts on memberships to a range of gyms in and round Copenhagen. Read more about the offers at KUnet (only for students who are already signed up.)
