Warwick Law School is delighted to witness Alex's well-deserved recognition for his commitment to education and his pivotal role in growing the "School Tasking" initiative.
The Warwick Wows celebrate amazing work, projects, and achievements at the University. The Law School’s Dr Alison Struthers won the award for her work on the School Tasking Project, an exciting outreach project enabling young people to learn about interesting aspects of the law and making it more accessible for them.
WLS's Dr Ali Struthers has been awarded the WAPCE Award for Outstanding Public Engagement for her work on the School Tasking project. The Warwick Awards for Public and Community Engagement (WAPCE) seek to recognise the vital contributions Warwick staff and students make in engaging the public in our learning and discovery and showcasing the role Warwick plays in making the world a better place.

The central press team caught up with Ali to hear more about the impact the project's had.
Making outreach work fun and engaging for primary school children (and showing them University can be an exciting prospect!) WLS’ School Tasking programme is growing in popularity and reach with a recent piece on BBC News Midlands highlighting the positive impact it’s having.
