7 November 2014 |

Associate Professor Nick Taylor is one of six finalists shortlisted for the national prize.

Nick has has been named as one of the six finalists for the 2015 Law Teacher of the Year Award. The award, which is sponsored by Oxford University Press, highlights the exceptional teaching taking place in law schools around the UK, and formally recognises the vital role played by law teachers.

Nick will now join finalists from across the country in the rigorous second stage of the judging process, involving campus observations and interviews with students and colleagues, to determine which teacher will win the award, to be announced in February 2015.

As part of the judging process, each of the shortlisted candidates will have to demonstrate their active interest in and development of approaches to teaching that influence, motivate and inspire students to learn, a commitment to supporting the development of their students as individuals, as well as effective and engaging communication, and an involvement in scholarly activities that influence and enhance the learning of students and colleagues alike.

This is a very considerable achievement for Nick as the panel received more than 80 applications this year.
