BPP Law School wins four international awards

Students from the BPP Law School won four international awards at a Chicago based competition. The BVC students won an outstanding 4 out of 5 awards at the International Academy of Dispute Resolution competition held in the United States.

This annual event attracted 36 teams from around the world. All of the teams had to compete against each other in three real-life mediation scenarios, which included a life insurance dispute, an out of court settlement following a car accident, and a disagreement between a franchising company and one of its franchisees.

The team from BPP Law School won trophies in all but one of the overall categories.

The BPP Law School team won:

* Outstanding New International Mediation Programme – joint 1st prize
* Best International Law School - 2nd Prize
* Attorney/Client Division - 2nd prize
* Main Award – Overall Best Mediation Team – 3rd Prize

There were six UK law schools present at the competition - BPP, Liverpool John Moores, Staffordshire, Queens (Belfast), Strathclyde and the College of Law.

Peter Crisp, Chief Executive at BPP Law School said, 'Our team of three students put in a tremendous effort before and during the competition, and this phenomenal success is down to their hard work and talent; not to mention the support of their coach, BVC lecturer Rahim Shamji whose drive, enthusiasm and determination have in no small way contributed to this great result. Well done to students Ali Nouraei, Camilla Whitehouse and David Collins – this is a fantastic achievement, and puts us firmly on the international platform.'
