Liverpool Law Clinic's SEN (Special Educational Needs) Judicial Review Project was highly commended at the Law Works Attorney General Pro Bono awards in the Best New Pro Bono Activity category.

James Betts, Solicitor and Lecturer in Clinical Legal Skills, said:

"I'm absolutely delighted that the important work our students do on our Special Educational Needs Judicial Review project has been recognised. Over the last 12 months or so the project has helped ensure numerous children with special educational needs receive the educational support that they need. Many of the cases our students work on involve families who are seeking help as their children are out of school. With our students help the project has helped numerous disabled children in Merseyside get back into school . This is vital work and the results can be life changing for the families and children the clinic support. The students that work on the project volunteer alongside their studies and so I am very proud that their work has been recognised at the awards."

"Working on the project has been a fantastic opportunity to actively support the families which come to clinic! It's wonderful to have everyone's hard work recognised and such an honour to experience an award ceremony held in the House of Lords."
