Law Clinic prize giving at the Broadway House Chambers Annual Garden Party
On 30 June 2017, a group of our third year participants in our Law Clinic attended the Broadway House Chambers Annual Garden Party.
Five students were shortlisted for the Law Clinic Prize, with Abigail Sisnett winning the Outstanding Achievement and Commitment to Social Justice prize.
Abigail won £100 and a weeks mini-pupillage at Broadway House Chambers, and all five of our students were each offered a weeks placement with the Chambers.
Michelle Colbourne Q.C (Head of Broadway House Chambers) announced the winner and said:
"These are dedicated young lawyers, committed to social justice, who told us with enthusiasm about their work at the Law Clinic. We heard how they assisted wives who were unable to obtain legal advice to support them in obtaining a divorce; father's for whom there is no legal aid to assist them to see their children and people who were at risk of losing their homes.
Their dedication and passion represent the finest traditions of public service in the legal field. We at Broadway House Chambers wish them every success for in their future careers and look forward to watching them develop into fine young lawyers, which having met them, we know they will doubtless become"

Ian Miller, Deputy Head of the School of Law, commented
"We are very proud of our students and the hard work they have demonstrated which is testament to the dedication to the Law Clinic – which is a truly innovative initiative we have here at the School of Law in Bradford. It provides our students with valuable real world experience which increasingly employers look for"
Our Law Clinic works in partnership with the Bradford and Airedale Citizens Advice Bureau and Law Centre, and our students offer comprehensive legal advice to those who might otherwise be unable to access justice.
