Derby College law student Imagin Shore has won the 2013 Flint Bishop Legal Excellence Award for presenting the best answer to a challenging competition question on the law governing clinical negligence and genetics.
The award was presented to Imagin at a special Celebration Evening held on 08 January 2014 at The Joseph Wright Centre in Derby.
A representative from Flint Bishop presented the award, having set the competition question and selected Imagin as the winner from a shortlist of three.
A spokesperson for Flint Bishop says:
“We were very impressed by the testimonials for all of the subject prize winners at the awards ceremony on 8 January. We were delighted to be able to say a few words in praise of Imagin’s competition response on the night. Not only had she come out on top in relation to her analysis and application of the law to a very complex area, but she stood out in terms of the clarity of her writing. The ability to communicate a complex area of any subject, at the correct level is a transferable skill that Imagin will be able to use, whether in law, or in another field. We wish Imagin all the best for her future studies at Derby University, and beyond.”
In addition to winning the award, Imagin won £500 of legal textbooks. Imagin says:
“Winning the Flint Bishop competition has made me feel extremely proud of my capabilities and has encouraged me to achieve my ambition to become part of the legal profession.”
Stacey Wright, Assistant Head of Faculty at Derby College says:
“We are so proud of Imagin’s achievements. She was able to articulate her answer to a complex question in a very comprehensive and unambiguous way.
We are delighted to have this partnership with Flint Bishop as it gives our students a real opportunity to stretch and challenge their abilities and knowledge while getting the opportunity to work with experts in the legal field.
The Celebration Evening is a highlight on our calendar as it is an honour to celebrate the hard work, dedication and high achievements of our students.”
