University of Lincoln students Jade Curran and Tarah Morris have won a prestigious award upon graduating from their law degree with flying colours.
They were jointly presented with the Best Overall Performance award, sponsored by Langleys Solicitors, in a ceremony held at Lincoln Crown Court.
This presentation followed immediately after the main graduation ceremony, held at Lincoln Cathedral. Each winner received a £200 prize and a certificate.
Professor Duncan French, Head of the Law School at the University of Lincoln, said: “The calibre of students this year has been exceptional. There is usually one winner of the Langleys prize but, after looking at their performance and overall scores, the Academic board was unable to separate these two outstanding students.”
The law degree at the University of Lincoln covers a wide range of practice areas, including employment and family law.
Peter Horner, partner at Langleys Solicitors in Lincoln, said: “It’s terrific to see such a depth of talent emerging from the law school, including two very worthy winners of the Langleys award in Jade and Tarah. I congratulate them both and all those graduating. It suggests that the future of legal services is in very safe hands.”
