Warwick Law and Business student wins Commercial Awareness competition

Earlier this year Jagoda Kochan, a Law and Business student beat over 2000 entrants to win the Aspiring Solicitors Commercial Awareness Competition.

We caught up with Jagoda to find out more.

21 year old Jagoda, who is in the third year of her BA Law & Business Studies degree at Warwick, wins a week’s paid work experience with each of the Aspiring Solicitors Commercial Awareness Competition sponsors: Barclays, Dechert, Mayer Brown, TLT and Travers Smith, plus a suit courtesy of LexisNexis.

The competition is designed to help entrants secure training contracts, with plenty of networking opportunities with companies available for the finalists. The final of the competition was held at Barclays’ London office, lasting from 9am to 9pm, with Jagoda one of 25 battling to impress the judges.

Jagoda spent three months preparing for the competition, run by Aspiring Solicitors, and had to progress through five rounds before a day long final saw her picked as the only female winner alongside five other students.

Congratulations Jagoda, from everyone at Warwick Law School!
