Will Herbertson, Marketing Strategy Director of NAHL Group, said: “A record number of entries were received this year from entrants nationwide, many of which set the bar high, leaving us with a tough challenge of selecting who to take through to the final.

In examining our current laws and providing ideas for reforming the law, each finalist demonstrated a wealth of insight and enthusiasm, with topics including agricultural law, laws on psychiatric injury to secondary victims and wrongful convictions, amongst the mix. We will them all the very best of luck for the final.”

Last year’s Future Legal Mind Award was won by University of Cambridge law student Joseph Kelen. Other previous winners have gone on to become barristers and solicitors.
