Trainee scoops prestigious award


A trainee solicitor at Sintons has received a prestigious award in recognition of her academic achievement.

Emily Richardson has received this year’s Northumbria University Master in Law Award Prize, after excelling in both her university degree and Legal Practice Course.

The Northumbria Law Prize is an annual award given to the best performing student who has graduated and begun a training contract the previous year.

Emily, a trainee in Sintons’ real estate team, received the award at the Newcastle Law Society dinner.

It becomes the latest recognition of Emily’s significant academic achievements, having been appointed to the honour roll for three years while she was at Northumbria, and also receiving the Ede and Ravenscroft award for achieving the highest mark in the year for a module.

“This is a fantastic achievement and we are very proud of Emily,” says Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons.

“The Northumbria Law Prize is a prestigious and highly sought-after award, recognising the best in emerging legal talent and their dedication to building their career from the very earliest stages.

“Emily is a very talented young lawyer whose commitment to her work is first-rate. She is a great asset to our team at Sintons and a central part of our vibrant trainee group.

“This award is yet more well-deserved recognition for her outstanding academic achievement. Congratulations, Emily, and all of your colleagues here at Sintons look forward to working with you as you continue to progress.”
