Leicester Law School students awarded work experience prizes by Shakespeare Martineau

Eight University of Leicester Law students will undertake work experience with national law firm Shakespeare Martineau, having been awarded the University’s Land Law prize.

Winning students, Harkirath Dhillon, Gabriel Downey, Jade Kasanga, Natalia Lozanow, Naren Mudaliar, Peter Raper, Rachel Roberts and Pala Sehgal, worked together as a team to produce a legal analysis on range of Land Law issues. The competition involved over 50 teams of students, and enabled them to develop both their legal knowledge, and key professional skills, such as team work, writing and project management.

Professor Adam Cygan, Academic Director at Leicester Law School, and Module Convenor for Land Law commented “This was a new initiative linking to Leicester Law School’s focus on providing students with the skills and professional links that they require for their future careers. We are very grateful to Shakespeare Martineau for their support.”

The students will all now undertake work experience at the Leicester offices of Shakespeare Martineau. Louise Ingram, Partner and Viral Dagly, Trainee Solicitor, visited Leicester Law School to speak to the second year cohort about legal careers at the firm and meet the winning students.  Louise Ingram commented “Investing in future talent is important to Shakespeare Martineau and so working with the University of Leicester on this project has been a fantastic experience. We are delighted to be able to welcome the winners to our offices and to give them experience of life in a law firm. It was a pleasure to meet the students, to answer their questions about the profession and to discuss with them their future careers in the law.”
