Winner of Law School's McCollum Consultants Prize Announced
The Law School prize, sponsored by Manchester alumnus Richard Williams-Lees goes to the top performing student in the Principles of Law, Medicine and Ethics course on the LLB.
The University of Manchester Law School is pleased to announce the winner of the McCollum Consultants Prize for the academic year 2019 - 2020. This year the student winner was Amelia Davis.
The course, Principles of Law, Medicine and Ethics, analyses the main legal principles that govern the regulation of healthcare in England and Wales, developing students’ understanding of the key ethical principles that underpin these regulations. Students on the course develop the ability to appreciate and assess medico-legal problems from an ethical perspective as well as from a legal perspective.
Student winner, Amelia Davis, said “I am deeply honoured to have received this prize. Following a crazy second semester, receiving this award was an amazing way to finish my second year at university. This award will help me to achieve my academic and personal goals, and has been very meaningful not only financially but emotionally as well, as it has strengthened my belief in myself.”
The annually awarded prize is sponsored by leading chambers of medical expert witnesses, McCollum Consultants. Based in Manchester and founded by University of Manchester Professor, Charles McCollum, alongside Manchester alumnus and Chief Executive, Richard Williams-Lees, the network brings together medical expertise and a deep understanding of the law to give reliable medico-legal advice.
“Giving back to the University is incredibly important to me; but for the University, I would not be where I am now, I am therefore forever indebted to UoM!” Commented Law School alumnus and co-founder of McCollum Consultants, Richard Williams-Lees.
