City Law School partners with Bishop & Sewell to launch Legal Research Award for London law students
The City Law School is partnering with Central London law firm Bishop & Sewell to launch the Bishop & Sewell LLP Legal Research Award.
Candidates will be required to prepare a research memorandum based on a well-known intellectual property and copyright case.
Finalists will then be invited to present their findings before a panel of judges on May 28th with winners announced on the same day.
In addition to financial awards for the top three, the winner will be offered an internship at the company.
Nick Potter, Partner at Bishop & Sewell, said:
“The firm sees this competition as a great way to support local students, encourage their research skills and understand the needs of law schools in anticipation of the new SQE (Solicitors' Qualification Examination).”
Director of The City Law School Legal Practice Course, James Catchpole, said:
As a leading provider of legal education, The City Law School is pleased to be collaborating with Bishop & Sewell to launch what we hope will be a much coveted Legal Research Award for our students.
