Aston Law School student Jenson Woodhouse, won the prestigious Neuberger Prize 

Aston Law School student Jenson Woodhouse, won the prestigious Neuberger Prize, set up by Lincoln’s Inn to recognise exceptional students about to start the final year of their undergraduate law degrees.

The Neuberger Prize is awarded annually by Lincoln’s Inn for undergraduate students who are about to start their final year of a qualifying law degree at non-Russell Group universities. It aims to identify students who are of proven excellence and give them the opportunity to integrate with the Inn during the final year of their qualifying law degree.








Next steps for Jenson 

Second year student, Jenson Woodhouse, will get the opportunity to attend a summer school at Lincoln’s Inn, be matched with a mentor for the third year of their degree and given the opportunity to complete a mini-pupillage, as well as a cash prize of £250 and free admission to the Inn.

Since 2015 there have been 32 winners of the Neuberger Prize. From these, thirteen have received Lincoln’s Inn BPTC scholarships to help them fund their Bar Professional Training Course.

Jenson, who is studying Law at Aston University, said:

“I am both delighted and honoured to have been awarded the Neuberger Prize. I am filled with great gratitude to the staff in the Law School who put me forward for the prize, and those at the Inn who selected me as a successful candidate.

“I am really looking forward to the opportunities provided by Lincoln's Inn to complete another mini-pupillage, attend a summer school at the Inn to develop the skills required at the bar, and to have a mentor for the final year of my degree.

“The opportunities bestowed upon me that come with the prize are unique; completely unattainable elsewhere for someone from my background.”

A message from the Dean of Aston Law School

Jonathan Fortnam, dean of Aston Law School at Aston University, said:

“I am thrilled for Jenson and on behalf of everyone at Aston Law School I would like to congratulate him on being awarded this coveted Neuberger Prize.

“Jenson will be able to benefit from additional support and guidance from Lincoln’s Inn for his future career and the opportunity to attend summer school there will boost his CV as they embark on a career in law following graduation next summer.”
