Dr Vicky Kemp awarded the Vice-Chancellor's Award 2024

KEI Awards 2024 VK

Dr Vicky Kemp from the School of Law was awarded this accolade for her work on access to justice and including improving legal safeguards for suspects; a special accolade in honour of a lifetime of achievement.

Presenting the award, Professor Shearer West, Vice Chancellor said: “Dr Kemp’s long and distinguished career has been characterised by a passion for connecting research to real world outcomes. Her work to help to identify and create improved outcomes for countless people within the legal system is both transformational and inspiring. That dedication to discovery is in our DNA at Nottingham, but Vicki’s research also illustrates both her and our passion for translating those discoveries into, policies, products and practices that change lives. This mission – and Vicki’s own remarkable achievements – would never have been realised without our other passions: for forging partnerships with industry and collaborators; and for exchanging knowledge and insights with our friends and partners.”

Vicky’s research interests lie in the areas of access to justice, law and technology, the criminal process, youth justice, and clinical legal education. Her research has led to revisions to Parliamentary acts, while her ground-breaking work reviewing different models of clinical legal education has encouraged several universities to expand their involvement in clinical work.
