The Access to Justice Foundation Student Prize
In addition to this year's pro bono awards, LawWorks supported an additional competition for law students.
The winner was George Gordon of BPP Law School. He received £300 worth of LexisNexis book vouchers and will see his winning article printed in the New Law Journal! You can download and read the article here.
Two other students were joint runners-up. Gillian Clissold of Cardiff Law School and Emma Boffey of University of Strathclyde. All the articles will hopefully be available to read in due course on the Foundation's website.
