Top law students recognised by Millar & Bryce

Carys Magee completed her studies at The University of Dundee.

Millar and Bryce, Scotland’s leading land and property search firm, has recognised two of Scotland’s top law graduates for their outstanding achievements in conveyancing.

Matthew Edwards from Aberdeen and Carys Magee from Greenock have both received the accolade’ for their continued efforts and contribution in their Diploma in Professional Legal Practice.

Twenty-two year old Matthew Edwards studied at The University of Aberdeen and is now set to embark on a two year traineeship with law firm Burness Paull LLP. He said: “To be recognised in this way is such a fantastic finish to my time at university.

“After such a long period of study, it will be good to now have the opportunity to put the theory and skills that I have learnt and developed throughout my academic career to good use and I’m looking forward to starting my traineeship later this year.”

Twenty-two year old Carys Magee completed her studies at The University of Dundee and has since begun a traineeship at Your Conveyancer Ltd, one of the UK’s largest providers of conveyancing services. Carys said: “It’s great to be recognised for all the hard work over the years; it came as a complete surprise but I couldn’t be more delighted.

“I found the conveyancing part of my course the most interesting and I’m grateful to be working with a company that specialises in this. My diploma gave me a lot of practical experience which has made me feel at ease in my traineeship so far, but I’ve already learnt so much.”

Debbie Welch, Sales and Marketing Director of Millar and Bryce said “The Conveyancing Student Scotland award showcases the hard work and dedication coming from these students. There has been rising confidence in the Scottish legal market and a lot of this is to do with the high standards attained by universities and their students.

“We are extremely proud to continue supporting this annual accolade and wish Matthew and Carys the very best of luck as they begin their next step into forging a professional career.”

Both students were awarded a £250 cheque and are invited to this year’s Modern Conveyancing Conference, where industry leading experts will be discussing challenges affecting the conveyancing market.
