Congratulations to Sonia Burgess and Joanna Saunders who emerged victorious from the gruelling selection process in the annual Lawyer 2B/BPP Law School essay competition.
Saunders who has a degree in European Studies and Modern Languages from the University of Manchester, and is currently working for the Charity Commission, scooped a free place on BPP’s Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) in London.
Burgess, who won a place on the Legal Practice Course, is currently on BPP’s two-year distance learning GDL. She also gained a degree in Politics from the Univeristy of Exeter in 1991.
Burgess said: “I am totally overwhelmed. Thanks so much for awarding the prize to me. It means that I can pursue a career that I have spent almost 10 years thinking about without the stress of worrying about how I am going to finance it.”
“It really is a life changing experience for me. So thanks so much for seeing my potential and giving me this fantastic opportunity,” she added.
