Every year the Law School invites students to nominate members of staff for the Head of School’s Award for Excellence in Teaching or Supporting Student Learning. The award is intended to reward staff and raise the profile of learning and teaching activity throughout the University.

Nominations can be made for anyone in the School who supports student learning, not just academic staff, and the winner receives a prize of £500, which may be kept as cash for personal use or used to pay for conference attendance and CPD activity.

The winner of the 2010-11 award is Lisa Anderson, Subject Advisor for Law and part of our Library team. Lisa has been based in the Law School for the last seven years and works with students, staff, and the Harding Law library to make sure that our students have access to all of the material they need for their studies. She takes classes at the beginning of each programme to ensure students know how to use both the Harding Law Library and the electronic resources that are so important to legal study in the 21st century.

Lisa said, “It was lovely to receive this award, especially as it was awarded by students. It makes all of the hard work of improving the services that the Library offers the Law students worthwhile.”
