Aston Law students have for the second time nominated lecturer Dr Ryan Murphy, Deputy Head of Law, for a prestigious national award. He is one of seven individuals nationwide who have been nominated by their students and shortlisted for the title of “LawCareers.Net Law Lecturer of the Year”

The winner will be announced tonight at the LawCareers.Net Training & Recruitment Awards, held at Merchant Taylors’ Hall in London. The LCN Awards is an annual event that has been running for over a decade in which organisations are identified and celebrated that offer their recruits the very best start to a career. The Law Lecturer of the Year award is designed to highlight and recognise the contribution made by those who teach law in an inspiring and engaging way.

On hearing of his nomination, Ryan said:

“I am delighted to have been nominated a second time for this award and ecstatic to be shortlisted again this year. We put student experience at the centre of everything we do and  I am touched that students have taken the time and effort to make a nomination. Recognition from students is the highest form of recognition that a lecturer can hope for and, whatever happens at tonight’s awards ceremony, I am proud to work in such a positive environment and with such fantastic students.”

Ryan is up against academics from institutions including the Universities of Liverpool, Derby and York.
