Peter Cane Legal Reasoning Prize 2018

The second Peter Cane Prize for Legal Reasoning by an Aspiring Lawyer (2018) was open to applications in February 2018. The prize was launched in 2017 and seeks to promote engagement with the ideas and reasoning behind law and legal studies, and particular to encourage those from all backgrounds and walks of life to apply to study law, especially at University. The prize is named after the distinguished lawyer, Professor Peter Cane, an internationally acclaimed scholar of legal theory, obligations and public law, and Corpus’ first dedicated law fellow.

The final shortlisted candidates each year are invited to attend an afternoon event at Corpus Christi; this year, shortlisted candidates attended the event on Tuesday, March 13th 2018. The shortlisted students, pictured below, enjoyed taking part in legal workshops with Dr Matt Dyson and Professor Peter Cane, and gained an insight into life as a law student from undergraduate student mentors. The day closed with a prize-giving ceremony and congratulations to all who reached the final stages of this highly competitive legal prize.
