City student wins CEPLER Essay Competition

A massive well done to City GDL student Chris Richards for winning the inaugural Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research (CEPLER) Essay Competition. This competition from CEPLER, which is based at the University of Birmingham, was open to any law student studying English Law for the first time. The essay question, “In an age of austerity, access to justice is a luxury” was intended to provoke debate about the serious and significant cuts to legal aid and changes to judicial review.

You can read Chris’s winning entry, now published as a CEPLER Working Paper in the University of Birmingham’s repository.

Chris also took home an iPad mini.
