Trainee’s skills captured in bronze


Article date:  30/03/2015

Iyanu Onalaja, a first year trainee at Higgs & Sons has been recognised as one of the outstanding students in the Midlands after being awarded a Bronze prize by the Birmingham Law Society.

Each year the Birmingham Law Society offers a number of prizes to trainees who have passed the Legal Practice Course at the first attempt with either a Commendation or a Distinction. Iyanu's Bronze award recognises the fact that her marks were the third highest of all those submitted for consideration.

Catherine Junor, Head of the Motoring & Private Criminal team where Iyanu is currently based, is thrilled that the young trainee's skills have been recognised in this way.

"Iyanu has worked extremely hard throughout her time at Higgs. Her ability and commitment levels are second to none and this award is a real testament to what she has achieved."

Iyanu, who has been at Higgs & Sons since September 2014, will receive her prize of £100 worth of book tokens at a ceremony taking place as part of the Law Society's AGM on Tuesday, 28th April.
