Queen Mary School of Law announces Black Lives Matter Student Prize

The Black Lives Matter Student Prize is an annual award that recognises the outstanding contributions of our undergraduate law students in advancing the cause of anti-racism within and/or outside the university, whether domestically or internationally.

The School of Law wants to acknowledge and encourage the work that our students are doing as part of the struggle against racism, as well as their desire to imagine, enact and embody a more just and equal world.

The prize is awarded in conjunction with Black Lives Matter UK, who operate as a broad inclusive non-partisan, unifying arm of the Black Lives Matter movement for racial and social justice in Britain within the UK.

Students may nominate themselves, or be nominated by another student, or a member of academic or professional services staff. Applications will be considered by the Department of Law’s Anti-Racist Working Group and a member of the UK Black Lives Matter steering committee.

Two winners will be selected to receive a prize of £300 and a note added to their academic transcripts.

The School of Law at Queen Mary strives to be an inclusive environment, with a community committed to challenging and opposing both individual and institutional racism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, xenophobia, and discrimination based on religion, class or age.

Nominations are open, and will close on Friday 29 March 2024. Find out more about the criteria, selection process and how to submit a nomination [PDF 42KB].
