Legal profession dominates social mobility awards shortlist

first_imgThe shortlist for a newly established set of awards to honour social mobility has highlighted the strides the legal profession has taken to become more diverse.Law firms and solicitors dominate the shortlist for the inaugural UK Social Mobility Awards. Winners will be announced in London in October.In-house solicitor Barry Matthews, director of legal and third party sales at ITV, and Sarah Hyde, of counsel at international firm CMS, are among six finalists for the ‘outstanding achievement of the year’ award.Matthews founded the Legal Social Mobility Partnership, which has been nominated for the ‘innovation award’. Matthews told the Gazette: ‘I’m extremely honoured to make the shortlist, although the scheme we have created is a true partnership and I will be representing the 70 law firms, commercial organisations and professional sports clubs all committed to creating a meritocratic ennvironment for the solicitors of the future.’Hyde is behind CMS’s bursary scheme, now in its sixth year, which provides aspiring young lawyers from disadvantaged backgrounds with financial help, work experience and support. One of the scheme’s first students will begin her training contract at the firm this year.CMS said the scheme’s success ‘comes as a direct result of Sarah’s initial idea, passion and devotion’.Claudine Adeyemi, a real estate associate at London firm Mishcon de Reya, has been nominated for the ‘rising star of the year’ award. In her spare time, Adeyemi founded and runs The Student Development Co, CIC, a non-profit organisation which provides career support to 16-24 year olds from less privileged backgrounds. She also created a mobile app, Career Ear, to improve access to quality careers advice.Adeyemi said it was ‘incredible’ that her work with The Student Development Co and everything she has achieved to improve young people’s experiences have been recognised.Daniel Levy, partner and head of Mishcon de Reya’s property litigation group, said Adeyemi is ‘passionate about helping young people reach their potential. These kind of pro-active social initiatives, in addition to the social impact opportunities we give our people, are something we greatly encourage and celebrate as a firm’.James Wickes, a partner at City firm RPC, is one of five nominees for ‘mentor of the year’. Wickes co-founded Limitless London a decade ago, which provides career guidance to school pupils in Wickes’ hometown of Barking and Dagenham.Wickes said: ‘I set it up because I didn’t have any real guidance when I was at school in terms of moving on to higher education or employment. When I got to university, I realised the lack of opportunities I had.’Over the past four years Limitless London has focused on helping Year 10 students. Wickes said the charity wanted to ‘get the message across’ at an earlier stage to help pupils ‘turn their predicted Cs into As’.The Ministry of Justice has been nominated for ‘organisation of the year’.International firm Simmons & Simmons, the Law Society of Scotland and the Legal Social Mobility Partnership will be competing for the ‘innovation award’.Magic circle firm Clifford Chance and international firm Pinsent Masons have been shortlisted for the ‘recruitment programme of the year’ award.National firm Browne Jacobson is nominated for ‘progression programme of the year’.Magic circle firm Allen & Overy and international firm Herbert Smith Freehills have been shortlisted for ‘community programme of the year’.last_img read more

Wednesday Tailgate: The challenge of shifting schedule strength

We say fair or not because, there’s only so much of that particular factor that is within a program’s control.As coaches often say, you can only beat the teams on your schedule. Once you get the win, it’s incumbent upon the teams you’ve played to hold up their end of the bargain and continue to play well — not that they’re thinking of you, of course. As such, the perceived value of certain results will fluctuate as the season plays out.We’re only a month into the 2015 campaign, but already the meaningfulness of some games has to be reassessed from the time we first saw them unfold.Three results whose value has increased for the victors:Utah 24, Michigan 17. As impressive as the Utes looked Saturday in Eugene, their Week 1 win against the Wolverines might carry even more weight. Michigan has allowed only 14 points in their three subsequent wins, including last week’s whitewash of BYU.Follow the road to the 2015 College Football Playoff at The Football Four, our home to rate and debate the nation’s best. Northwestern 16, Stanford 6. Largely dismissed at the time as a function of Stanford being overrated in preseason polls, the Cardinal have since rebounded to win their first two Pac-12 contests, one of which was a road triumph at USC.Florida 14, Kentucky 9. The Gators are supposed to beat the Wildcats by more than that, right? But UK bounced back from that disappointment to take down defending SEC East champ Missouri.Three results that looked better at the time:Michigan State 31, Oregon 28. It was a top-five showdown, and it helped propel the Spartans to the No. 2 ranking. But the Ducks’ disastrous night Saturday against Utah dealt Michigan State some collateral damage.Oklahoma 31, Tennessee 24. It was a nice comeback on the road for the Sooners, but the Vols have proven to be generous with a fourth-quarter lead once again.Texas A&M 38, Arizona State 17. That Week 1 romp vaulted the Aggies into the top 25. But the Sun Devils have done little to justify their own preseason ranking since, looking completely overwhelmed on their home field by USC last Saturday. Three results whose value is yet to be determined:TCU 23, Minnesota 17. Minnesota got well-deserved praise for hanging with the Horned Frogs on opening night. The Golden Gophers haven’t lost since, but they haven’t exactly been overpowering, either. They needed overtime to get past Colorado State then got three-point wins at home against Kent State and Ohio.Iowa 27, Pittsburgh 24. Right now it’s the best of the Hawkeyes’ four non-conference wins. Exactly how the Panthers will stack up in the ACC Coastal is a mystery. They’ll start to solve it this weekend as they visit Virginia Tech.Alabama 35, Wisconsin 17. The Badgers haven’t damaged themselves since this predicted Week 1 setback, while the Crimson Tide have plenty of other concerns coming up in the SEC. When all is said and done, we might look back at this one and wonder whether it was a good loss for Wisconsin.COLLEGE FOOTBALL VIDEO PLAYLISTlast_img read more

Courtois fine for Atletico game despite injury scare

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesBoss Antonio Conte says goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will be fit for Chelsea’s Champions League game against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday despite needing treatment after a nasty fall during the 4-0 win over Stoke.Courtois came to claim a corner but collided with Gary Cahill when in mid air and landed awkwardly.AdChoices广告But the Belgian did not suffer concussion and was able to carry on.Conte was about to bring on Cesc Fabregas at the time and waited for confirmation Courtois was OK before making the change.“I spoke with the doctor and I asked if Thibaut was OK and the answer was positive. He said you can make another substitution,” the Italian explained.“The player is OK to play the next game at Atletico Madrid.” See also:Morata scores hat-trick as Chelsea thrash StokeHughes insists Alonso should have been sent offAlonso substitution was tactical, says ConteFive Chelsea players in England’s Under-17 World Cup squadConte: It’s the right moment for HazardStoke v Chelsea player ratingsCosta completes move back to Atletico Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
