Austin Attridge(pictured 2nd left) and Nik Plamadyala (2nd right) each received a cash prize at the C.B. Evans Law Awards that took place on 22nd May. The awards, kindly sponsored by The Queen Mary’s College Foundation (an entirely separate charitable organisation) saw almost twenty students gain recognition for the hard work and enthusiasm they have shown throughout the year.
Chris Evans (centre), Governor of the Queen Mary’s Foundation for over 25 years, was present at the ceremony which took place in the Dame Evelyn Glennie Performance Space at QMC. He began by explaining how the Foundation supports students in pursuit of education based activities that are not normally provided by current education funding.

Teachers from QMC’s Law Department shared insights regarding the effort and commitment shown by the students who were to be commended for their achievements. Upon presenting the certificates Chris congratulated each individual student for their personal contributions and success. The awards concluded with Austin and Nik being presented the overall winners shield and £100 cash prizes for A Level and BTEC Law respectively. Both Austin and Nik were delighted with their prizes and intend to put the money towards their higher education.
Teacher of Law Lisa Hotten (left) said “Austin has a real enthusiasm for law. He is deserving of the prize because he participates fully in lessons and always encourages others and helps to clarify points. He has excellent attendance and consistently high grades. He represented QMC very well at the National Bar Mock Trial competition and on a visit to Allen and Overy (an international law firm providing legal services for global business and industry in London). He has made excellent progress during his time at QMC and has high expectations of himself. He has an offer to study Law at Reading University and aspires to be a solicitor or barrister. Congratulations”
Fellow teacher Jordan Renault (right) added “Nik stands apart from his peers in his determination to succeed and to improve his understanding of the law. He has demonstrated an excellent student mentality and an eagerness to learn for its own sake as well as for the purposes of achieving his academic goals. The standard of his work has been consistently high and it is evident that he has invested himself in each task with meticulous attention to detail and use of legal authorities. He is conscientious in all that he does and generous in the help that he affords others. He has received an unconditional offer to go to the University of Portsmouth and study Criminology with Forensic Science as he hopes to join the Police Force and work towards becoming a detective. Well done Nik and congratulations.”
