The prize winner for this academic year will be announced in the summer 2017.

The Ashurst Outstanding Law Student Prize

In April 2017 the Law School were delighted to introduce a new annual prize for the exceptional final year LLB student at Exeter Law School. The prize is offered by the leading international law firm, Ashurst.

The prize is open to all students who obtained a final degree result of 65% or more but who can also demonstrate excellent extracurricular non-academic achievements over their three year or four year LLB degree. The latter could include, by way of example, setting up new initiatives relating to law which translated into tangible outcomes that helped others, such as setting up a charity providing legal advice, or running fund-raising initiatives that helped others in the legal context. The full prize specifications are available on these Powerpoint slides. 

We advertised the prize on 7th April 2017 and students were asked to discuss their nominations with the prize Committee Members or the Director of Prizes and Scholarships. We are delighted that there is much interest in the prize and the process of selecting the winner is going to be competitive. To facilitate this process we are asking students to  complete this form and please make sure you adhere to the word limits.

Please send completed forms to Dr Radek Stech, the Director of Prizes and Scholarships, by email – – by 13th June 2017 8pm.

Date: 7 April 2017
