Richard Hoyle, currently studying Law at Brasenose
College, has won this year's TARGETjobs national Law Undergraduate of the Year
title. The competition, sponsored by Mayer Brown, featured three stages of assessment,
and culminated with an award ceremony held at Canary Wharf on the 16th
of April. Richard, currently on a placement at the University of Bonn as part
of his Law Studies in Europe course, beat off close to 300 competitors to win
the award. He wins a place on Mayer Brown's Summer Work Experience Programme,
which includes a trip to their Brussels offices.
commented, "I am delighted to have won this award in the face of stiff
competition from some of the UK's best Law undergraduates. I hope that the
Award will be a springboard to further success when I seek to enter the legal
profession in a few years time, and on a general level, I am sure that being
chosen for such an honour will reflect favourably on the College. Brasenose has
a great legal tradition and I'm very pleased to be a part of that."
