05 July 2019

Sabrina Germain of City from the University of London has been named Law Teacher of the Year at the annual Celebrating Excellence in Law Teaching conference hosted by OUP.

The event brought together law academics for a day of sessions and discussions on higher education and topical issues such as how we ensure successful transitioning; legal technology; and the benefits, reasons, and challenges of incorporating practical and applied law teaching.

The conference concluded with outgoing Law Teacher of the Year, Lydia Bleasdale of the University of Leeds announcing Sabrina Germain as this year’s winner. Accepting the award, Sabrina commented, ‘I'd like to thank my students for motivating me to be the lecturer that I am. I thank them for challenging me every time I enter a classroom.’

The announcement followed a rigorous and demanding judging process spanning several months, during which each candidate was visited by members of a judging panel who conducted extensive interviews with students and colleagues as well as observing a typical teaching session.

All the candidates displayed exceptional depth and breadth of teaching talent. Other finalists included Neil Allen from the University of Manchester, Lucy Yeatman from the University of Liverpool, Victoria Ridler from Birkbeck University of London, and Jane Bryan from the University of Warwick.
