The College of Law (CoL) has lost its five-year spot on the Attorney General’s Pro Bono Awards shortlist for best contribution by a law school.
Instead, this year BPP Law School, Northumbria University, Sheffield Hallam University, University of Hull and University of Manchester will compete for the trophy.
The short-listed candidates will be introduced to the Attorney General Dominic Grieve on 27 March at the House of Lords when the winners will be announced.
The three other awards available are for best individual, best team and new pro bono activity (see the full shortlist below).
Last year the candidate that scooped the best individual category won a one-week stint in Canada with LexisNexis.
The judges this year included Warwick professor of legal education Julian Webb, LexisNexis head of academic development Thomas Laidlaw, editor of lawcareers.net Isla Grant and vice-president of the Law Society Lucy Scott-Moncrieff.
