Philip Plowden

On stepping down as Dean of the School of Law in 2011 to move onto a post with another university, Philip set up the Philip Plowden Prize for the best performing undergraduate student undertaking work in the Student Law Office Criminal Appeals clinic. This prize of £100 per annum was awarded for the very first time in June 2011 to Nikita Boz, who completed her LLB (Hons) Exempting Degree with First Class Honours.

On stepping down as Dean of the School of Law in 2011 to move onto a senior post with another university, Philip set up the Philip Plowden Prize to recognise the best-performing undergraduate student undertaking work in the Student Law Office Criminal Appeals clinic.

The 2014 prize was awarded to Rachael Fearon, on the completion of her MLaw. Her supervisor reported that throughout her year in the Student Law Office, Rachael was very diligent and demonstrated great commitment and dedication to her clients. On receiving the prize, Rachael said:

"I am very grateful to have been awarded this prize. It definitely made my final year at Northumbria University and my graduation that extra bit special! May I take this opportunity to send my sincerest thank you.”

Philip Plowden expressed a great satisfaction with supporting students in this way:

"I enjoy helping young lawyers to reach their potential and look forward to hearing about future winners of the prize in the years to come."
