Sidumise Sibanda, now a second-year student on Westminster University’s LLB Solicitor’s Exempting Degree was awarded a summer work placement in September 2012 at Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors, a long-established practice and one of the leading immigration law firms in the UK.

Sidumise who was awarded the Public Law Work Placement Prize for achieving outstanding results in her coursework, undertook a successful summer work placement where she obtained valuable hands-on experience working in a busy central London law firm.

Sidumise was presented with a certificate by the Head of Department, Mr David Amos, at a special award ceremony in September 2012.

The School of Law at the University of Westminster is currently one of only five institutions in the country, and the only one in London and the South East, which offers the Solicitor’s Exempting Degree, a qualifying law degree which exempts students from the Legal Practice Course, and enables them to start training as a solicitor as soon as they graduate.

The Department of Vocational Legal Studies, which is committed to providing students with opportunities to boost their employability, would like to thank Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors for giving students this valuable opportunity and also for sponsoring further work opportunities during this coming academic year.
