Commenting on Miriam’s success, Stephen Clear, Miriam’s Personal Tutor and Law BEA Co-Coordinator for Student Projects and Initiatives, stated: “Miriam has consistently strived for the best grades alongside her extensive engagement in extra- and co-curricular activities. Not only has she held down a part time job while completing her studies, but she has also entered several mooting competitions, including the K.K. Luthra India Moot in New Delhi. Furthermore, she has completed an internship with the Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies’ Procurement Week team, has been President of the Afro-Caribbean Society, a Student Coordinator within the School’s Legal World Series programme, and had a very active role on the School’s Staff-Student Committee. This is in addition to her impressive number of law work experience placements.”
