NSCG Newcastle College A Level student, Robyn Oxborrow has recently had the opportunity to attend a prestigious legal workshop at Oxford University's Corpus Christi College, after entering an essay into The Peter Cane Legal Reasoning Prize.
Robyn, who is currently studying A Level Biology, Chemistry and Law was selected for the workshop after being awarded 'Highly Commended' for her strength of argument and clarity of writing in her competition entry.
Talking about her recent experience, Robyn said: "Having the opportunity to visit Corpus Christi College was really informative. I enjoyed hearing all about the application process from the Head of Law and taking a tour of the college. I also had the opportunity to participate in a debate on modern slavery and if the law should take more of a self-regulatory approach. The even gave me a real glimpse at Oxford's excellent teaching."
Earlier this year, recent Student of the Month winner Robyn, was also successful in being accepted onto a residential event at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge which focused on human, social and political sciences, in particular politics, anthropology and sociology.
Robyn added: "At university, I want to study law and focus more on criminal and jurispondent topics where my interest in people and society can shine. I love everything about the world of law and the flexibility it holds."
Study Support Tutor Clare Briscoe said: "Robyn is one of the most engaging and exuberant students I have ever met, with seemingly boundless energy and a genuine thirst for knowledge and experience. She actively seeks out book and podcast recommendations and is keen to explore new avenues and fresh inspiration. Always enterprising, Robyn entered the essay competition at Corpus Christi College, Oxford herself and is a really independent learner. I am sure she will go far in life, congratulations Robyn on your achievements so far."
