Student Chloe Convery has been named as a finalist in National Accident Helpline’s Future Legal Mind award 2019

Chloe Convery beat competition from budding lawyers across the country to be named on the shortlist for the annual Future Legal Mind Award.

The 20-year-old is in the second year of her Law degree and aspires to have a career in corporate and commercial law.

Chloe said: “I am honoured to receive this recognition of my legal abilities outside of my degree, and this will help me to advance my career prospects. I wasn't expecting to get to this stage, but I’m pleased that I have.”

The competition, now in its fifth year, is run by National Accident Helpline to give a boost to the fledgling careers of the nation’s most promising legal talent.

Law students and those in the first two years of their legal career were invited to submit an essay about their legal ambitions and how having a legally-trained mind would benefit them, their local community and society.

Their responses were whittled down to a shortlist of 10, including Chloe, who were all asked to submit a home-made video to support their written entry. The Videos are available on the National Accident Helpline's website.

Tom Fitzgerald, Managing Director of National Accident Helpline, said: “We received some excellent entries from students and trainees who were clearly very passionate about pursuing a career in Law.

“Chloe’s essay and video submissions showed us a clear rationale of why she chose to study Law, and we wish her the best of luck in the competition.”

The winner of Future Legal Mind will be named in May and will receive a prize package including valuable mentoring and networking experience.

The winner will meet with a Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice and receive mentoring advice from experienced lawyers within the National Accident Helpline team.

They will also star in a showcase film highlighting their skills and receive a prize fund of £2,000.
