SOAS University of London

School of Law Undergraduate Prize Winners’ Reception 2018/19

22 July 2019

Congratulations to all our undergraduate prize winners!

To round off a marvellous year during which SOAS Law graduates were shown to earn more than Oxbridge graduates, the School of Law held its fourth annual Undergraduate Prize Winners’ Reception 2019. Professor Mashood Baderin, the Undergraduate Programmes Convener and The School of Law were delighted to welcome the prize winners and their friends and family members to an evening to remember. Two former Heads of the School of Law – Professor James Read and Professor Michael Palmer – were also at the event. Prizes were presented by SOAS teaching staff and alumnus Benjamin Ng (Associate, Freshfields, Bruckhaus Deringer) amongst others. Marina Filina, who won multiple prizes, said that she succeeded because she did more, rather than less, during her time at SOAS. Marina certainly juggled a lot during her degree, including being co-President of GuideWorks , a peer mentoring scheme which helps new fellow students find their feet. Professor Carol Tan, the Head of the School spoke of the academic year being marked by working closely with the student body on various student union society projects to enhance careers opportunities, mooting experience and to establish the Detention Law Clinic. Students who edited the SOAS Law Journal were also honoured during the evening. Final Year Tutor Dr Mayur Suresh presented the School of Law’s thanks to ‘Professor’ Muhammad Gangat, a graduating student who provided revision classes for fellow students and who also published a book during his final year.
