In March we were proud and delighted once again to recognise a promising mediation student by presenting the David Poole Memorial Award to Sana Mansur, currently a third year LLB Student at Coventry University.

Our picture shows Sana Masur, alongside her tutor Harriet Lodge and Head of Faculty Professor Stephen Hardy, receiving the award from Martin Havelock, Chair of Oxford Mediation.

David Poole (who studied Russian at the University’s predecessor Lanchester Polytechnic) was a widely respected mediator and trainer, and a founder member of Oxford Mediation.  The award in his memory recognises excellent writing by a Coventry student on a specified mediation topic.  This year’s topic:  ADR paved the way but mediation is the future.
