Cornwall Law Society awards prize for Outstanding Legal Academic Performance

Cornwall Law Society are sponsoring a new prize for Law with Business students at the University of Exeter's Penryn Campus in Cornwall. The Cornwall Law Society Prize for Outstanding Legal Academic Performance is awarded on the basis of academic excellence in Law modules.

Dr Caroline Keenan, Director of Education for the Law School, Cornwall said: “This new prize is another example of our valued partnership with the Cornwall Law Society, which works to support our students to become ‘the most useful person in the room’ following their graduation. We are delighted to confirm that this year’s prize winner is Remy Ling. She was selected by the Law School as someone who had consistently demonstrated outstanding legal skills in both her assessed and class work throughout the year across a broad range of subjects, achieving the highest marks in her cohort in all law subjects and the Criminal Law Research Prize.”

Kathryn Whitford, Immediate Past President of the Society said: “The Cornwall Law Society congratulates Remy on being the first recipient of the Cornwall Law Society’s Prize for Outstanding Legal Academic Performance. We established links with the University’s Law and Business Schools at the Penryn Campus from the initial intake of students onto the Law with Business Degree Programmes in 2019, and are delighted that that relationship has not only been maintained, but has strengthened. The Society was therefore keen to sponsor an annual award to recognise its commitment to the Law and Business Schools University of Exeter.

On receiving the news of her award, Remy said: “I am delighted to have received this prize from the Cornwall Law Society and would like to extend my sincere gratitude to them for this accolade. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Law and Business lecturers who have worked incredibly hard to engage and support students since the launch of our programme, especially throughout the challenges that this academic year of remote studying has presented.”

Kathryn added: “The Society hopes that the Cornwall Law Society’s Prize for Outstanding Legal Academic Performance is an award which all of the faculty’s students will aspire to achieve and that it will be a notable achievement for its recipients, which will benefit them in their future careers. We wish Remy all best wishes in her future legal career.”
