Law Teacher of the Year Award

Nominations are now open for Law Teacher of the Year 2019.

Attracting the best talent.

We're calling for nominations to this year's award. Teaching excellence is hard to define, but you know it when you see it, and when you experience it.

It comes from someone who excudes energy, as if that person has an invisible force that draws people in, and holds their attention.

If that person is in your law school we want to hear about them. We welcome nominations from teaching colleagues and students.

Download the nomination form.

The form should be completed and returned via email to helaw.uk@oup.com no later than 5pm Friday 21 December 2018.

Putting together a good nomination

When pulling together a shortlist all the judges have to go on is the anonymised nomination form. So make this as strong as you possibly can. 
If you are a student nominator we encourage you to work with a teacher to make the entry as strong and relevant as possible.

  • Do check the eligibility guidelines before submitting your nomination.
  • As noted on the form, each criterion should be addressed in 200 - 400 words to give the judges enough to go on.
  • Provide evidence and examples where you can. You can include feedback from others in the form.
  • After receiving your nomination we will contact both the nominee and their Head of Department for further information: it is therefore vital that you inform them of your nomination before it is submitted.

If you have any queries about your nomination, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at helaw.uk@oup.com.
