A Manchester law firm has awarded a cash prize and a unique work experience opportunity to a top performing student.

Stephen Jeffreys, who studies at the Manchester Law School, has been recognised for his outstanding performance in immigration law.

Stephen, who is in the second year of a full-time LLB undergraduate degree, achieved the top overall mark in the optional Immigration Law unit and was awarded with a cheque for £250 by immigration law specialists Latitude Law.

He will also undertake a week of work experience with the firm in their Manchester office.

Speaking about his award, Stephen said: “I’m so happy to have won this award. A weeks experience at Latitude was a great experience and a real eye opener -  the £250 was definitely helpful as well.

“I’d just like to say a massive thank you to Latitude Law for the award and to my tutors for helping me win it!”

Latitude Law have been providing invaluable advice and legal representation to clients in the north of England since 2007 and now boast one of the largest immigration law teams in the area.
