Prizes for Law Course students
PRIZES have been awarded to law students who achieved the highest marks in the 2017 Jersey Law Course examinations.
Last year 26 new advocates and solicitors were sworn in, having successfully completed their studies through the Institute of Law.
At the Law Society of Jersey annual dinner last month prizes were awarded by Deputy Bailiff Timothy Le Cocq in his capacity as president of the board of examiners.
Law Society president Advocate John Kelleher said: ‘The route to qualifying as a Jersey advocate or solicitor requires a considerable level of study and dedication, and to achieve success is a great achievement. We congratulate them all and wish them well in their future careers in the legal profession.
‘Not only is it appropriate for us to celebrate these success stories, but it is also a great opportunity for us to reflect on the effective collaboration between Jersey’s legal profession and the Institute of Law, which has created an effective learning environment through which the Jersey Law Course can exclusively be offered.
‘Student numbers on the Jersey Law Course remain at relatively high levels, which augurs well for the future generation of lawyers who will serve the increasing legal needs of our Island,’ added Advocate Kelleher.
