Hopes and dreams : our commitment to the next generation
Acknowledging achievements and helping to fulfil the goals and aspirations of the next generation has been a long-standing priority of our niche family law firm.
This commitment includes setting up the Jones Myers Prize for the Best Overall Performance on Master of Laws of England and Wales to a Leeds Law School student since 2020.
Our wider collaboration with the Law School at Leeds Beckett University includes giving our time and skills to support the Law Faculty’s Professional Mentor Scheme and Law Clinics for the past four years.
Dr Rachel Dunn, Course Director of Pro Bono, and Employability at Leeds Beckett University said:
“Leeds Law School is very happy and grateful of the ongoing commitment from Jones Myers. Support from local law firms is extremely important to the development and opportunities for our students and Jones Myers continues to contribute to this.”
This year’s well-deserved recipient of the Best Overall Performance prize is Jenny McKenzie, who we warmly congratulate.
Said Jenny: “I am delighted to have been awarded the Jones Myers Prize! It means so much to have my hard work rewarded. I have thoroughly enjoyed studying law at Leeds Beckett and am excited to use the skills and knowledge I have gained in my future career.”
Andrew Fox, Jones Myers Partner, and Director added: “Helping to develop today’s students as they progress to become tomorrow’s lawyers is integral to our ethos.
“We are proud to support the aspirations of law students through our valued partnership with Leeds Beckett University and we wish all the students every success in their future careers.”
Watch this space for an imminent announcement of Jones Myers’ expanded community relations programme entitled ‘Family Lawyers making Charitable Changes.’
The pro-bono venture will involve our 22-strong team across offices in Leeds, Harrogate and York conducting diverse activities with wide-ranging charities of their choice.
