Congratulations to Upper Sixth student, Milena, who has won the University of Law’s Real World Questions essay competition.
Milena came across the advertisement for the competition, which challenged students nationwide to answer real essay questions such as “how fair is the criminal justice system?” and “how do businesses adapt to change effectively?” whilst taking part in virtual work experience at The University of Law.
The judging panel, made up of industry experts, looked for opinions offered and supporting evidence, sophisticated language that can influence and persuade people, and the use of a mixture of resources, including those provided by the University of Law and their own research.
The impressive winner’s prize includes £1,000 in cash, a week’s work experience with either Clyde & Co or the Co-op, and a two-hour session with the University of Law’s director of employability
When asked how they felt when the news came in, Milena, a former Bedford High School pupil, said: ‘I was genuinely speechless when I heard that I had won, I didn’t think I’d even place.’
No doubt, the experience will be of great value to Milena who holds an offer with the University of Law in London for September. Milena told us: ‘My future study and career plans are to graduate from university in London with a professional policing degree and to eventually become a detective in London.’
What a fantastic achievement, we think you are well on your way to achieving your future career goal!
