    International Law Firm Recognises LLM Student’s Achievements

    Since their launch in 2000, the LLM degrees offered by the School of Law of Swansea University in international shipping, trade and commercial law have attained an enviable international reputation.  In 2008, industry leader Ince & Co, which has long had a strong relationship with the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law (IISTL) at Swansea University, introduced an annual prize for the student who achieves the highest grade in the taught element of any of the LLM Programmes. In keeping with the close links between Ince & Co and the IISTL, the Ince Prize is awarded for work that has a direct connection with that undertaken by the firm.
    The winner of the Ince Prize for the academic year 2010/11 was Ms Susanna Marsden. Susanna was presented with her award by one of the firms partners, Mr Paul Herring, at a ceremony held at their London office on 8 July 2011. Susanna is a graduate of Oxford University and is currently completing the dissertation component of her LLM degree in International Maritime Law at Swansea University.
