Meet the Candidates
After much discussion, our judging panel has arrived at the final six candidates that make up the shortlist for Law Teacher of the Year 2013. Full details on those candidates can be found below.
The candidates will begin the next stage of the process. This involves a campus visit by our judges where they will observe the candidate leading either a lecture or seminar and conduct interviews their students and colleagues. Our judges will then base their decision on the large body of evidence which they will collate, and the winner will be announced at our awards ceremony in early 2013.
