Double success for prize winner Chloe

Chloe Booth, winner of the Weightmans Solicitors Law Student of the Year prize

[T]here was cause for a double celebration for Chloe Booth from Arnside who not only joined 20 colleagues graduating from the University of Cumbria’s law department but was awarded a prestigious prize.

Chloe received the Weightmans Solicitors Law Student of the Year prize in recognition of her achievements during a demanding but rewarding course, ranked first in the north west of England.

“It was a fabulous course – I loved every minute and am so pleased to graduate,” Chloe said. She’s now set to continue her studies in Manchester with the aim of qualifying as a barrister.

The Cumbria law course, accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and The Bar Standards Board, offers students the opportunity to get plenty of hands-on experience, including working with clients, mooting and mock court proceedings, shadowing the judiciary in Cumbria and advocacy training days.

“We’re a modern, practice-oriented, forward-thinking law school and our teaching staff are experts in academia and legal professional work,” Ann Thanaraj, principal lecturer in law, said.

Chloe joins a growing number of law students to graduate from the university which recorded 100% course satisfaction in the 2017 National Student Survey (NSS) and came second in the UK for student satisfaction for tutor feedback (Guardian League Tables 2017).
