Congratulations to Lower 6th student, Abby, who won first prize in the City Law Officers Essay Competition.

The City Law Officers' Essay Prize is an annual essay competition run by the City Law Officers and administered by the Comptroller & City Solicitor’s department. It is intended to promote an interest in legal history and its place in modern society, as well as encouraging greater access and awareness of the one of many ancient ceremonies, the Quit Rents Ceremony.

The competition was open to all sixth form students in Greater London. The Quit Rents Ceremony and Prize Giving took place on Wednesday 9 October at the Royal Courts of Justice. Abby was presented with her prize by the Lord Chief Justice. She will also have the opportunity to complete a week’s work experience in the City in the Comptroller and City Solicitor's Department as part of her prize.

Mr Richard Dolan, Head of 6th Form, commented on the importance of the competition

“Our close links with the City of London provide excellent opportunities for Freemen's pupils to play their part in preserving our rich heritage. Abby winning first prize in the City Law Officers' competition displayed her curiosity and determination to tackle an issue that is prevalent in Society today. Who knows where this argument will go?”

Well done Abby.
