With ten scholarships awarded to students commencing a postgraduate taught course with us this September, School of Law students make up over 10% of recipients awarded a scholarship as part of the Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme (PSS) at the University of Sheffield.
The scheme is one part of the University of Sheffield-led consortium project, which secured a £3m Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) grant to look at innovative ways of removing barriers to, and improving the take-up of, taught postgraduate programmes.
Read on to find out more about the project.
As part of this initiative, we are running a series three of networking events, giving our most recent graduates the opportunity to develop and establish lasting relationships with other members of the alumni network.
Last week saw the second in this series of events, hosted at The Clubhouse in Grosvenor Hill. Following a warm welcome from Professor Lenny Koh, Associate Dean for Alumni Affairs in the Management School, attendees enjoyed a general knowledge quiz hosted by none other than the School of Law’s Professor Claire McGourlay.
The final 2014 event is due to be held on Thursday 16th October – more information will be added to the law alumni pages in due course. Alternatively, please feel free to get in touch with us directly with any enquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
On Thursday 5 June 2014, The Graham Battersby Mooting Cup and Prize was awarded to a student at the School of Law.
The Graham Battersby Mooting Cup and Prize is awarded to one student each year that excels in the skill of Mooting throughout the year.
Philip Armitage received the prize for the 2013/2014 academic year. Philip has just completed his Graduate Diploma in Law and is now leaving Sheffield to undertake the Bar Professional Training Course in London.
Philip has been heavily involved in numerous internal and external mooting competitions, excelling throughout. He progressed to the final of the Edward Bramley Law Society mooting competition and also took part in external competitions as well.
We were extremely lucky to have Graham Battersby in attendance to present the Cup to Philip. Graham is a former Professor of the School of Law. Graham supported Mooting whilst he was a member of staff at the School of law and continues to provide support through sponsorship of the prize.
Sarah Blandy, Head of Civic Engagement, was also in attendance to congratulate the students. Gareth Bramley, University Teacher and Mooting Co-ordinator, also attended the prize giving.
The prize was nominated by the Student mooting representatives for the Edward Bramley Law Society, Caitlin Padget and Jonah Kennedy. Caitlin and Jonah attended the prize giving, to congratulate Philip.
