Law undergraduate wins international award
A University of Reading undergraduate has won a top prize for her Law research project at this year’s British Conference of Undergraduate Research.
Chantelle Bacchus, 21, beat over 200 students from 51 institutions worldwide, including universities in Russia, Poland, Australia, Italy and the Republic of Macedonia. This year’s event included a total of 80 student talks and 94 research project posters over two days.
Chantelle, originally from Chingford, East London said:
“Taking part in Reading’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme, [UROP] is a big thing for me and the beginning of fulfilling a dream. It’s been a big eye-opener and has shown me the importance of legal research and the career opportunities that could follow on from it. I have developed a set of skills that will set me up for life including self-management, thorough researching and analysis at a higher level.”
