Murder, manslaughter and assault: legal master class for Sirius law students.



Murder, manslaughter and assault – all will be topics for debate when students from Hull’s Sirius Academy take part in a master class with lawyer Neil Hudgell.

Six A-level law students will attend the event, part of an ongoing series of lectures, at the headquarters of Neil Hudgell Solicitors in Hull on Wednesday January 29th.

Neil Hudgell, Managing Director of the business he founded, will lead discussion on the legal implications of various scenarios including a boxing match that gets out of hand and an assault on a shopper which leads to allegations of murder.

Richard Rhodes, Lecturer in Law at Sirius Academy, said: “These sessions are invaluable in expanding our students’ knowledge and experience and raising their aspirations.  By linking with business they gain insight into possible future careers.

“We’re very grateful to Neil for the time he gives sharing his expertise.  Neil leads the discussion and suggests approaches to legal problems that the students perhaps wouldn’t have considered.  As well as examining theory, Neil is able to give an understanding of how issues would be dealt with in a court.”

Neil Hudgell has given around a dozen lectures to students at the Academy as part of their curriculum but this is the first time a session will be taking place at his offices.

Neil Hudgell said: “I hope that inviting the students into my practice will strengthen the bridge between school and the workplace and give them a better awareness of how a law firm operates.

“I enjoy working with the students, it keeps me on my toes and I would be very pleased if my input led them to progress and develop a career in law.  I’ve always been very grateful for the support local people have given me and my business and this is a way I can give back to our city and encourage some of our youngsters.”

In past years, Neil Hudgell Solicitors has formed strong links with Sirius Academy.  As well as regular lectures, the practice also established “Legal Eagles”, a programme open until 2016 which gives A Level law students from the Academy the opportunity to apply for a bursary of £500 to support their studies.  In addition, Neil Hudgell Solicitors’ Operations Director, Michelle Maltby, is on the Academy’s Board of Directors.

Neil Hudgell Solicitors, which specialises in compensation claims for personal injury, medical negligence and professional negligence, was founded in Hull by Neil Hudgell in 1997 and has grown to become a national brand.  As well as the headquarters in Hull, the business now has five offices in London, Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol employing over 110 staff.

Neil Hudgell went to Andrew Marvell School in Hull and then studied at night school while working before going on to University and then qualifying as a solicitor.  In 2009 he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Law from the University of Hull.

The £48 million Sirius Academy opened in October 2011 and was one of 25 new schools created in Hull as part of the Building Schools for the Future Programme.
