Warwick alumna wins top law prize

Phillipa GrahamWarwick law graduate Philippa Graham (LLB 2002-05) has scooped one of the major law student awards in the country for her outstanding performance in family law.

Philippa, aged 27 from Gloucester, is joint winner of the Resolution Prize awarded by Resolution, a 5,500-strong national lawyers’ association that promotes a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes.

The Resolution Prize is awarded to the student who obtains the highest overall mark in the family law paper of the Legal Practice Course (LPC) across The College of Law’s eight nationwide centres.

All those intending to become solicitors must pass the LPC before they can proceed to the next stage of practice.

Philippa was a student at the College’s Guildford centre until July and scored 90 per cent in the family law exam. She shares the award with two other former College students.

In September this year Philippa began a two-year training contract to qualify as a solicitor with Anthony Gold Solicitors in London. She said: "I was delighted to hear I had been awarded the Resolution Prize for my performance in the family law module at The College of Law. I enjoyed this particular course a great deal and feel honoured to be receiving a prize from an organisation that I know and admire for doing vital and constructive work in family law. It is an area of law in which l hope to work in the future. "
