Law with Criminology student a finalist in national Future Legal Mind award
(16 March 2017)
In the second year of her Law with Criminology degree, Bethany Hargreaves has been named as a finalist for Future Legal Mind (FLM) 2017, a national award for UK undergraduate law students, set up in 2014 by National Accident Helpline to recognise young legal talent.
Bethany is in line for a potential £5,000 prize and work placement at law firm Simpson Millar, after impressing industry judges with an essay on the UK’s civil justice system. The winner's essay will be posted on Lawyer2B.com.
Bethany said: “My first reaction to finding out I was shortlisted for Future Legal Mind was shock. To be shortlisted alongside intelligent and deserving candidates is overwhelming.
“Future Legal Mind is an invaluable opportunity for law students. The legal profession is extremely competitive, and FLM provides an extremely important boost to CVs. I cannot express my gratitude for being shortlisted enough.”
Bethany has taken part in many charity events, as well as volunteering overseas in countries including Mexico and Thailand, which she believes has helped her develop a global mindset which she can use to make positive contributions to society.
