Birmingham Law Student wins Ince & Co Tort Prize

Posted on Tuesday 16th November 2010

On Wednesday 22 September, Jyoti Ahuja, a final year student on our LLB for Graduates programme, attended a prize evening at the London office of the international law firm, Ince & Co. Jyoti was awarded a prize for her exceptional performance in the Obligations B (Tort) module last year.

(L-R) Andrew Ottley, partner at Ince & Co, Jyoti Ahuja, prize-winner, James Lee, Birmingham Law School, and Kevin Cooper, partner at Ince & Co.Jeremy Farr, the Recruitment Partner at Ince & Co, said on behalf of the firm:

"We are delighted to be able to recognize Jyoti's achievement by presenting such a well-deserved prize to her.  As international lawyers involved in most of the world's maritime casualties, tort is a key area of law for us.  It is therefore immensely satisfying to be able to recognise the excellent teaching of tort at Birmingham in this way."

Jyoti thanked the firm in reply:

"The prize is simply a reflection of the fact that I've really enjoyed my first year of legal studies, for which I must thank our lecturers at the Birmingham Law School- the lectures and seminars have often been extraordinarily stimulating and interesting. Winning this for something I've so enjoyed doing feels a bit like a bonus. It has, of course, also involved hard work, so it's a big boost to receive the prize. Many thanks to Ince & Co for this, and for the lovely evening at their offices, which was a great opportunity to meet them all."

As well as sponsoring the prize, Ince & Co is one of the Law School's partners in the Law in Practice seminar series, which enables students to understand their curricular subjects in their commercial context. Birmingham Law School looks forward to welcoming the Ince & Co team back to campus for the Tort Law in Practice seminar on Thursday 10 March next year.
