Financial Remedy Essay Competition 2023 – Winners Announcement

14th December 2023

This year, 4PB was proud to launch the inaugural Financial Remedy Essay Competition to nurture excellence and innovation in the field of financial remedies. As a leading family law set, we recognise the value of continuous learning and the exchange of ideas for the advancement of family law practice. With this opportunity, we aimed to introduce current law students, as well as those who completed their studies and were actively seeking pupillage, to the realm of Financial Remedies law in the hope that they will be inspired to further explore this area of law.

The title for this year’s essay was: “Courts should consider a party’s behavior in the division of financial assets. The case law has set the bar too high.”

Congratulations to our winner, Juliette Thomas, and our runners-up, Samuel Wilcox and Allegra Kunze-Concewitz.

Juliette’s essay will be published in the LexisNexis Family Law Journal, in addition to winning a £500 cash prize, a mini -pupillage place and the opportunity to marshal for Sir Jonathan Cohen.

Our runner-up will also receive a mini-pupillage place.

Thank you to all who took part in this year’s competition, and a special thank you to Sir Jonathan Cohen, who joined our judging panel and visited Chambers yesterday to announce the winner at our Winner’s Reception.
