Flint Bishop Award University Students

Bondholder law firm Flint Bishop has awarded bursaries to two students from fellow Bondholder, the University of Derby.

Sayra and Molly, both third-year Law LLB (Hons) students, competed against other applicants to gain a position of work within the firm.

David Hodgkinson, Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Derby, said: “Both Sayra and Molly have gained commercial awareness, knowledge of the importance of client objectives and attained advanced legal skills to support their understanding of substantive law during their studies at Derby Law School.

“It is clear that their academic and professional creativity has been developed as well as an inherent ability for learning legal consequences and applying them in real world practice. I am certain both Sayra and Molly will be valued assets to Flint Bishop and I am very happy for both as they develop their legal careers.”

Andrew Cochrane, Senior Partner and Licensing Lawyer at Flint Bishop, said: “There was an overwhelming number of applicants, so much so that we had to go forward with a second round of interviews.”
