As part of the School of Law’s commitment to rewarding excellence in academic performance the School Examination Boards award a series of prizes each year for students who rank first in particular subjects or year groups.  Some of these prizes have work experience placements attached to them and provide invaluable first-hand exposure to legal practice. 

The School of Law is pleased to announce the introduction of  the Tony Roe Solicitors Family Law Prize.

Tony Roe Solicitors was established in 2008 by Keele alumnus Tony Roe.  Based in Reading the firm offers a comprehensive range of family law services which include divorce and separation, children and financial disputes, civil partnerships, cohabitation issues and associated property disputes, personal protection and harassment issues.   The firm is particularly focused on international aspects of divorce and family law, and is experienced in dealing with assets held abroad or in off-shore tax havens, children relocation and abduction, recognition of foreign orders and enforcement of orders across borders.

The Tony Roe Solicitors Family Law Prize will be awarded annually to the finalist (FHEQ Level 6) student with the best performance in the Family Law module.  It will include the provision of a one week work experience placement with Tony Roe Solicitors at their Reading office.  The firm will also provide a maximum allowance of £150 to the recipient of the prize by way of contribution to travel and subsistence expenses that may be incurred by the recipient in undertaking the work experience placement.

For the student receiving the prize, it will appear on their HEAR and be announced at graduation.
