Lancashire Law School graduate Mandhlase Mwanza beat off stiff competition to win the valuable Lord Denning scholarship which will fund her studies for the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC).
The Law School’s previous Dean Lynne Livesey commented: “Mandhlase has shown determination to succeed throughout her four years with the Lancashire Law School. She joined us as a student without formal qualifications via the specialised law foundation year course route. From an early stage she showed great promise on the programme and progressed to the LLB, where she achieved excellent results, culminating in her well-deserved award of first class honours.”
Mandhlase says, “I found studying law at UCLan intense and challenging at times, but also stimulating and enjoyable. The academic staff are excellent teachers, brimming with enthusiasm for their subjects, and this motivates students to stay determined and focused. More importantly, my time at Lancashire Law School has taken me on a journey of personal discovery, growth and development. I have acquired so many useful skills from the course, in particular oral communication skills. Seminar discussions, oral presentations, interviewing and negotiation, mooting and debating are used heavily across all modules on the law course, and, although a bit scary at first.
