The University of Strathclyde Law Clinic was delighted to receive the runner-up position and was awarded Highly Commended in the ‘Best LegalTech Contribution’ category.
On Wednesday 1 May 2019, Law Clinic Director Kate Laverty, Student Director Kirstie Webb and Communications Officer Jordan Hamlett travelled to London for the LawWorks and Attorney General Student Pro Bono Awards 2019. The Law Clinic had been shortlisted in two categories: Best contribution by a team of students and Best LegalTech contribution respectively.
The Awards, run by LawWorks with the support of the Attorney General, the Rt Hon Geoffrey Cox QC MP, recognise and celebrate the outstanding pro bono work undertaken by law schools and law students across the UK.
The event was held at the House of Commons member’s dining room, opening with a speech from Attorney General Geoffrey Cox which focused on the importance of pro bono work, specifically the contribution made by students.
Kirstie Webb reflected on the experience saying:
“It was a privilege to represent the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic at this year’s awards ceremony. To be in the presence of so many Law Clinic’s and organisations providing access to justice throughout the UK was truly inspiring and it was a heartening experience to hear so many success stories.”
