Final year Law students Michaela Dowe-Stephenson and David Roberts have both won awards at the University of Leicester Student Awards 2013 for their inspiring volunteering efforts.

Michaela won the Leicester Award Student of the year for her achievements through achieving the Volunteering Award. The Volunteering Award is a part of the Leicester Award for Employability run by the Career Development Service.

Through doing the Volunteering Award she has been able to apply her voluntary experiences to employment and interview scenarios which in turn helped her to gain a scholarship which will enable her to succeed in her future career as a barrister.

She was delighted to win the award saying "The experience was a truly memorable end to an amazing time spent at University."

The Frank May Award for Volunteer of the Year went to David Roberts, who won the prestigious Frank May Cup for his dedicated services to the Legal Advice Clinic at the University of Leicester that provides free legal advice on landlord and tenant issues, employment law and contract law to the students and staff of the University.

The nomination for the award is supported by a statement from a team member involved in the project, which endorses the individual’s personal development as well as their impact and contribution to the project.

David was "absolutely thrilled" to win the award, which he stated could not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of everyone involved with the Legal Advice Clinic.
