Sussex law lecturer wins national teaching award

Mary Lee receives her award from the Publisher of LawCareers.Net, Matthew Broadbent.

A Sussex Law School lecturer has won a national teaching award for the second time in just six years.

Students across the country nominated a total of 380 individuals for LawCareers.Net Law Lecturer of the Year 2017, including Mary Lee - a previous winner from 2014.

Mrs Lee said: "This award means a great deal to me, more especially because it is the result of student nominations and comments. I feel very lucky to be working with students who are passionate about both their teaching and learning of the law. I am very appreciative of those who took the time to nominate me and who made such kind and thoughtful comments."

The award, which was introduced to the long-running LawCareers.Net Training & Recruitment Awards in 2012, is designed to highlight and recognise the contribution made by those who teach law in an inspiring and engaging way.

This year, Mary was one of seven individuals shortlisted for the coveted title, alongside lecturers from universities including Leeds and Surrey.

Mary received her award at the Training & Recruitment Awards ceremony at Merchant Taylors' Hall in London on 18 May.
