We were honoured to sponsor the awards for the next generation of legal professionals from Leeds Law School, which forms part of Leeds Beckett University.
They recently held their annual prize giving which takes place to honour their top performing undergraduate and postgraduate students for the 2019/20 academic year. We were delighted to sponsor the award the prize for best student performance on conveyancing.
David Cowgill, partner in our commercial property team, said: “We were privileged to be asked to be involved as a sponsor of an award which recognises students for their hard work and academic success during the last year, within which they, along with all students, have suffered unprecedented challenges as a result of the lockdown measures”.
“We congratulate all of the students graduating and particularly those that have excelled and were a recipient of an award this year. As a firm we are pleased to support the home-grown talent here in Leeds”.
More than 200 law firms operate from the city, with Leeds being described by the The Legal 500 (Legalease) as “second only to London”.
