RGU Law academic shortlisted in the prestigious Halsbury Legal Awards

A Robert Gordon University (RGU) academic has been shortlisted in this year's prestigious Halsbury Legal Awards.

Dr Sam Middlemiss, a Reader in Law in the Law School at RGU's Aberdeen Business School, has been shortlisted in the Academic Contribution category of the major awards which celebrates excellence in the law and legal profession.

This is the second year the Halsbury Legal Awards have been held and Dr Middlemiss is the only Scottish nominee – he's listed against academics from Cambridge, Oxford and Queen Mary University in London.

Dr Middlemiss said: "I am delighted to be in the running for this award. It is not often that the work of academics is recognised by legal publishers with a strong practitioner focus - particularly by a publisher with the prestigious, professional, long-standing, international, reputation of Halsbury."

Ken Mackinnon, Head of the Law School at RGU, said: "My congratulations to Sam for making it on to the shortlist.

"This is a good opportunity for me to acknowledge the significant contribution he has made, and continues to make, to the Law School over the years, across teaching, administration and through his prodigious research output - and of course more recently in driving through the launch of the Law Clinic.

"I thank him most sincerely for all of that, and wish him well in September."

These major awards celebrate the values and excellence of the legal community and are judged by an independent panel of legal professionals.

The winner will be announced at an exclusive and prestigious event in Central London on Wednesday September 24.
