Ulster University School of Law recently held its second annual prize-giving for students on the Corporate Law, Computing and Innovation (CLCI) LLM/MSc, on the Belfast campus.

The prize-giving brought together representatives from law firms Allen & Overy and Herbert Smith Freehills, members of staff from across the University, past and present students on the CLCI course, and friends and family members.

This interdisciplinary programme was created in response to demands from industry, and with significant input from major global banking, legal, and consulting firms, to provide students with a unique opportunity to learn from seasoned industry experts across disciplines. It presents an exciting, first-of-a-kind partnership between the School of Law and the School of Computing, Engineering, and Intelligent Systems.

Dr Adam Buick, Course Director for the Corporate Law, Computing and Innovation LLM/MSc said:

“Ulster University is committed to being a key partner for industry, and in the School of Law we work to deliver innovative courses that will prepare students to meet the future needs of employers and that will develop competitive talent pipelines to help ensure a sustainable future for all.

"We take immense pride in the accomplishments of all our graduates and are delighted to recognise the outstanding achievements of these three prize winning students. I wish them continued success as they embark on the next phase of their professional journeys and am confident that they will each make a positive impact both in Northern Ireland and further afield.”

The prize winners are: 

  • Katie Sloan, Citi Best Overall Academic Performance Prize
  • Maggie Maguire, Allen & Overy Law Tech Prize
  • Robbie Sinclair, HSF Corporate Law Prize and the Factor Law Computing Prize

Speaking at the prize-giving, Co-Director of the Legal Innovation Centre and former Head of School, Professor Eugene McNamee also praised the links between industry and academia that the CLCI course represents and expressed his admiration for the prize-winners accomplishments and their potential to shape the continuing development of technology in the legal industry.
