School of Law students toast successes at graduation

Law graduates at Middlesex UniversityStudents joined by friends, family and lecturers for celebrations

The hardworking class of 2014 celebrated in the sunshine with friends, family and lecturers on 16 July after graduating from the School of Law.

Hundreds packed the Rickett Quadrangle at Middlesex University's Hendon Campus to raise a glass to the students' successes and look forward to a bright future.

Among those dressed in their ceremonial gowns was Professor Joshua Castellino, Dean of the School of Law, who was full of praise for this year's graduates.

"I am extremely proud of the class of 2014 and I have every faith that they will go on to achieve great things in their careers," he said.

The School of Law is a leading centre for human rights, and also present at the event was honorary graduate Bineta Diop, who this year became Special Envoy for Women, Peace and Security at the African Union Commission.

As part of her new role, Ms Diop, named as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME magazine in 2011, has been asked to investigate human rights violations committed during the armed conflict in South Sudan.

Also Founder and Chair of Femmes Africa Solidarité, a leading global NGO, Ms Diop sets a fine example for all of this summer's graduates leaving the School of Law.
