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 Sheffield Alumni in London Networking Group is designed for post-2000 alumni of Economics, Law and Management, who are currently based in or around London.
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: email@example.com
