Five students from the Anglia Law School at Anglia Ruskin University achieved first-class LLB (Hons) law degrees at a recent graduation ceremony in Chelmsford, Essex.

Simon Gardner, Cheryl Hayward, Kylie Taylor, Kamala Singh and Eden Legesse, who are all from Essex, are from a group of mature and undergraduate students who all took the Qualifying Law Degree, which allows graduates to progress directly to the vocational stage of training for the profession of solicitor or barrister.

Kamala Singh, who spoke at the graduation ceremony, thanked the group’s lecturers for their hard work and support. 

Programme Leader, Nigel Stockwell said:

“These students have each performed exceptionally well. It is probably a decade since we have had this many firsts from one group.”

“This course is about academic excellence and achievement, and about developing the kind of skills that will help individuals to succeed in a wide range of fields. Whether they are looking to pursue a career within the legal profession or within a business environment, the skills students take from this degree make them well placed to succeed.”
