High Sheriff award for aspiring Browne Jacobson lawyer

30 March 2015

An aspiring lawyer has been honoured by The High Sheriff of Derbyshire for her outstanding public service to law and justice through her voluntary work with Derbyshire Probation Service and Derby Victim Support.

Emily Heslop, a legal assistant at Browne Jacobson, was presented with her commendation by The High Sheriff of Derbyshire, David Coleman QPM DL, at a formal awards ceremony at the University of Derby.

Emily first started as a volunteer with Derby Victim Support two years ago and later joined Derbyshire Probation Service where her work includes providing mentoring and rehabilitation support to ex-offenders through The REACH Project.

The awards are presented each year to individuals who have performed outstanding community service in Derbyshire and made a real difference to peoples quality of life.

The High Sheriff of Derbyshire, David Coleman QPM DL, said:"The High Sheriff of Derbyshire works with the University of Derby annually, to recognise law students who make a significant contribution to the local community in a voluntary capacity during their university course. Emily was one of three students recommended for the High Sheriffs Award and it was a great pleasure to present her with a well-deserved High Sheriffs Commendation for the voluntary work she is doing with the Probation Service. She works in a challenging role, dealing one-to-one with high risk offenders to rehabilitate them into society following conviction. She clearly has a genuine concern for people, and a strong commitment to voluntary service, and I am confident she will have an outstanding career in the law."

Emily Heslop commented:"I am very proud to have received the award. Victim Support and Derbyshire Probation Service are great charities to work for and provide a lot of support for their volunteers."

Emily, who is currently in the third year of her law degree at the University of Derby, joined Browne Jacobson earlier this year.

Neil Ward, clinical negligence partner at Browne Jacobson added:"As a law firm we are committed to working with and supporting the communities we serve so we are delighted that Emilys hard work and dedication to this valuable initiative has been recognised."
