The Society for Computers and Law (SCL) is a registered educational charity, and therefore sponsorship of SCL can also be described as a charitable donation. Your support of SCL means that the Society can meet its charitable objectives, maintain its student schemes, and continue to educate and support our tech law community.
Sponsorship packages will vary according to each event and are advertised ahead of time on the SCL website.
Gold Sponsor (Conference drinks reception) £3000 - this package is no longer available in 2019 but can be reserved for 2020
Silver Sponsor - £2000
Bronze Sponsorship - £1250
Supporter of the SCL Annual Conference - £750
*Please note that all prices quoted above are exclusive of VAT.
Gold Sponsor Package - £2,500 + VAT
This package will be used for providing refreshments for the teams throughout the day (including lunch) and reimbursing students who have accommodation expenses. We have teams taking part from all over the UK and beyond and sponsorship will help enable those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend to get involved.
Supporter Package - £750 + VAT
The supporter package will be used for providing materials for the event and trophies for the winning team and runners up etc.
Work Placement or internship
A work placement is a fantastic way of giving the winners some real hands-on experience and a chance for them to see how to apply what they've learned during the competition. This competition attracts a very high calibre of candidate - exactly the people you want to recruit.
Past SCL lectures have been given by Dr Mike Lynch OBE, Lawrence Lessig, Sir Nigel Shadbolt, Dame Wendy Hall, The Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, Professor Richard Susskind OBE FRSE and most recently Shannon Salter, Chair of the Civil Resolution Tribunal in Canada.
The SCL Student Essay Prize honours the memory of Sir Henry Brooke CMG, a former President of SCL and his immense contribution to the field of computers and the law.
Each year students are asked to submit a 2500-word essay on a given topic. In 2019 the question was “Do social network providers require (further?) regulation?”
Sponsorship will enable us not only to continue to hold the competition but to explore additional prizes such as work experience or internships.
(Sponsorship of student travel can be shared by more than one organisation).
A significant new initiative that will enable SCL to subsidise student travel and attendance at all SCL events. SCL believes that the cost of travel should never be a bar to students wishing to attend SCL events. Therefore, SCL would like to be able to cover reasonable, standard class travel expenses for any student applying to attend an SCL event. The availability of student travel assistance will be advertised on the details of all SCL events together with an acknowledgement of the sponsors support of this scheme, the sponsors’ logo and a click-through to the sponsors website.
