Law Summer Graduation 2014
Law students from Queen Mary University of London were awarded their degrees at the graduation ceremony on 14 July 2014. The 2014 results for law were excellent, with 82 per cent of students graduating with a 2:1 or above.
The School of Law celebrates its 50th anniversary next year and is ranked 3rd in the UK and 1st in London in the Guardian University Guide 2015.
Head of the Department of Law, Professor Valsamis Mitsilegas said: "Congratulations to all our graduating students and thank you all for your valuable contribution to Queen Mary. We hope that you will stay in touch with the School of Law and continue to be an active part of our community."
Prizes are awarded to first, second and final year undergraduate students in recognition of academic performance, with final year students receiving their prizes at the graduation ceremony. 20 prizes were awarded this year, with sponsored prizes from law firms Dechert, Old Square Chambers and Herbert Smith Freehills.
Shannon Diggory was awarded three prizes, including the Roger Crane prize for academic performance and contribution to the life of the School. Shannon was active in Queen Mary's Legal Advice Centre, where she supervised advice sessions and contributed to a commercial awareness bulletin.
Shannon said: "I'm incredibly proud to be graduating from Queen Mary, particularly with first class honours and I'm looking forward to coming back as an alumni, both for the Legal Advice Centre and hopefully to participate in some careers events."
