Alex wins ‘Magna Carta 800’ Essay Competition

As part of the celebrations marking the 800th anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta, the University of Exeter Law School and The Devon and Somerset Law Society organized an essay competition on the topic of ‘The United Kingdom needs a new Magna Carta’ and invited students from across the South West to take part with prizes of £100 for the best 1000 word entry from ‘A’ level and university students.

Sixth Form History student, Alex Haslam, researched the historical significance of the Magna Carta as part of his ‘A’ level coursework and used his findings as a basis for the winning essay of the schools category. Head of Sixth Form and History teacher, Karen Tucker, encouraged Alex to enter the competition and is delighted with his success.
