    Law graduate receives Nigel Kayanni Prize

    Swansea University Sociology graduate Charlotte Jones has won this year's Nigel Kayanni Prize for her achievements while studying for the Graduate Diploma in Law.

    The Nigel Kayanni Prize is an annual award of £500 given in memory of the School of Law student, who died in tragic circumstances two years ago.

    Twenty-five-year-old Charlotte, from Fforestfach in Swansea, said she always had a fascination with law, but it was vacation work with a firm of local solicitors that cemented her decision to further her education.

    She enrolled on the one-year diploma course after she discovered that, as a Sociology graduate, it was still possible for her to qualify as a lawyer by undertaking the Diploma, followed by the one-year Legal Practice Course at Swansea.

    Although she admits her legal studies have been challenging at times, Charlotte is one of the School of Law's top students and, upon completion of the Legal Practice Course at Swansea, will pursue a career as a solicitor.

    Graduate Diploma in Law Course Director Karen Davies, said: "Charlotte thoroughly deserves to be rewarded for her hard work and determination, and I'm confident that she will go on to enjoy a very successful legal career. Her success is likely to inspire others who may be considering a change of direction in their career choices."
