Building on a string of recent awards and nominations, the Law Clinic is pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted in two categories at this year’s Law Works national pro bono awards. The University itself has been shortlisted for the Best Contribution by a Law School, and our current Student Director Hannah Cosgrove has been shorlisted for the Best Contribution by an Individual Student award. The Law Clinic has had some past success at these awards, and so would hope to continue this trend.
Donald Nicolson, Clinic Director, notes that “the fact that we have been shortlisted in these two categories, against impressive competition from across the length and breadth of Britain, demonstrates two things: the value that clinics can bring to a host university, and the sheer drive of the individual students involved. All of this is, of course, only possible thanks to the huge amount of work that the student volunteers, and small number of staff members, quietly do every day in helping people who have nowhere else to turn.”
The award ceremony will take place on 25 March 2013 in the House of Commons.
