Students who achieved the highest marks in the Jersey Law Course examinations in 2021 and 2022 have been celebrated during the Law Society's annual prizegiving ceremony.
Five students received awards, with Ralph Spencer-Tucker and Sonia Shah each receiving two at the annual Jersey Law Course ceremony.
The prizes were presented by the Deputy Bailiff, Robert MacRae, in his capacity as President of the Board of Examiners.
"The route to qualifying as a Jersey Advocate or Solicitor requires a considerable level of study and dedication and to achieve success is a great achievement," said Law Society President Rose Colley.

"Today we celebrate excellence on the part of individuals who have achieved the highest marks in very testing examinations. We congratulate them all and wish them well in their future careers in the legal profession."
She added: In the recent examinations, 15 students completed their examinations and will be sworn in as Advocates and Solicitors later this year.
"Combined with healthy student numbers on the Jersey Law Course, this augurs well for the future generation of lawyers who will serve the increasing legal needs of our island."
