Two London-based teachers have been jointly crowned law teacher of the year for 2008.
Professor Alastair Hudson of Queen Mary University and Dr Fernando Barrio London Metropolitan University were presented with their awards during the UK Centre for Legal Educations (UKCLE) Learning in Law Annual Conference earlier this month. They each scooped half of the 3,000 prize-winning cash fund, donated by Oxford University Press.
Teachers required nominations by at least two colleagues or students to be considered for the prize. The rigorous judging process spanned a total of five months during which time a shortlist of five candidates was drawn up, with each observed on campus by a group of judges. The visits involved filming of teaching sessions and interviews with colleagues and students.
Professor Hudson said of his success: Teaching really is a vocation everyone is here because this is what we do, this is what were passionate about. This is hugely flattering and Im delighted to be sharing the award with Fernando. Thank you!
The other finalists were Dr Sarah Beresford (University of Lancaster), Neil Stanley (University of Leeds) and John Tribe (Kingston Law School, Kingston University).
