A Bristol alumnas has won the grand final of Herbert Smith’s inaugural student law advocacy competition.

The event, on 16 September, showcased the talents of five students who had made it through to the final after submitting videos of themselves talking about the competition’s theme of diversity.

Hannah Klein (BA 2008), who studied politics and French, won with her discussion of the proposition ‘Diversity: a bandwagon or real issue?’

She faced a tough panel of judges, which included Shami Chakrabarti, director of Liberty, Ben Summerskill, chief executive of Stonewall, and Nigel Savage, chief executive of The College of Law.

Hannah plans to spend the £3,000 prize money on law school fees.

The competition is run in conjunction with the Times.
