Law Clinic Student Wins National Award

Student Director Hannah Cosgrove With Her Award

Strathclyde Law Clinic Student Wins National LawWorks & Attorney General Student Pro-Bono Award.

We are delighted to announce that yet again the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic have been successful at this year’s LawWorks and Attorney General Student Awards. Student Director Hannah Cosgrove was a much deserved winner in the Best Individual Student Award, beating off competition from seven others.

This award was thoroughly deserved after the effort she has put into the Clinic over the last two years. She has been instrumental in the formation of the Scottish Universities’ Law Clinic Network, and also has taken the lead in establishing our Schools Project, setting up links with the Terence Higgins Trust and also establishing an outreach clinic in Bathgate.

This award builds on previous successes at the LawWorks awards ceremony, which have seen the Law Clinic shortlisted on various occasions, winning Best Law School in 2009, Best Contribution by an Individual Student, Alasdair Stewart, in 2011 and more recently winning Best Contribution by a Team of Students Award, in 2012.

Hannah said “Winning this award is a perfect way to mark the end of my time in the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic. I am absolutely delighted, not only to have received this award, but to have had the opportunity to be in the Law Clinic and make a genuine difference to people who would not have achieved access to justice without it. The pro bono work that I have taken part in would not have been possible without the support and hard work of everyone in the Law Clinic and the University of Strathclyde itself. Hopefully, this is something that will continue and grow for years to come.”
