Slaughter and May sponsor two new academic prizes for Warwick Law students


Every academic year, several awards and prizes are granted to our highest achieving undergraduate students from each year of study to recognise and celebrate the success of our top performers.

This year, we are pleased to announce a set of two new academic prizes for the academic year 18/19, which will be sponsored by the international law firm Slaughter and May.

The two prizes will commend:

  • The best performance in the Introduction to the Law of Property Relations module for students in the first year of their degree
  • The best performance in the Contract Law module for students in the intermediate years of studying their degree

The winners will each receive £250 as well as a visit to the offices of Slaughter and May.

Jane Bryan, Associate Professor and co-convenor of the Property Law module shared her thanks to Slaughter and May stating that ‘the prize will be really appreciated by both the students and the teaching team'.

The Introduction to the Law of Property Relations is a core module on our undergraduate Law degree here at Warwick and focuses on the role of law in the implementation of ideas and policies concerned with the ownership, use and development of land.

Contract Law is an elective module for second, third and fourth years that aims to introduce you to the fundamental notions of contract law, which is one of the “building blocks” of the common law and which underlies much of commercial and consumer law.

Thanks again to Slaughter and May for contributing these prizes; we look forward to seeing the winners announced next year.
