What the winners had to say
“When I joined The Branding Group at Konexo as a trade mark administrator in 2022, I had no experience with working in IP.
Therefore, it means a lot to me to be receiving the Roy Scott Award, as it confirms that all of the hard work throughout the CITMA Paralegal Course has been worth it, and hopefully, an exciting career path lies ahead.”
“I am grateful and pleasantly surprised to be receiving this award.
“The teaching we received on the Queen Mary postgraduate course was relevant to my everyday work with clients, expanded my understanding of the law, and has proved a useful asset as I progress towards qualifying as a Chartered Trade Mark Attorney.”
"I'm delighted to receive the award. I really enjoyed the course, and am looking forward to continuing my training."
“It has been a difficult route to qualification, so qualifying with the top grade is particularly meaningful.
“Anyone that works and studies at the same time knows how hard it can be, but I am glad my years of hard work have paid off.
“I’d like to thank my team at Stobbs IP and especially Yana Zhou, for all her support and encouragement along the way.”
