Flamank Law Society
Flamank Law Society was set up to establish a law network for students at our Penryn Campus. The Society was named after Thomas Flamank, an eminent lawyer and Cornish MP. Together with the legendary Michael An Gof, they led the Cornish Rebellion of 1497, a protest against taxes imposed by Henry VII.
Flamank works closely with Exeter University Law School, and also with a variety of law firms. These include local firms like Murrell Associates and Stephens Scown, as well as large international law firms like Herbert Smith Freehills and Allen & Overy. Our links give members access to various employability opportunities. We hold mooting and debating events in our ‘Stannary Court’ at Penryn Campus and take part in competitions further afield. Many of our members gain pro-bono work experience through the Access to Justice sub–group. Advice is given in community café-type environments as well as at the Legal Help Desk at Truro Combined Court, thanks to our links with local organisations like the Dracaena Centre in Falmouth.

Thriving culture of prizes and scholarships
The Law School has a thriving culture of prizes and scholarships which involves collaboration with, and taking inspiration from influential global Partners. This culture has been introduced and developed with Dr Radek Stech taking up an appointment as the Director of Prizes, Bursaries and Scholarships in November 2015.
Our culture of prizes and scholarships is based upon two core guiding principles: ‘beyond marks’ and ‘beyond money’. The first relates to the criteria upon which the student winners are selected and includes extracurricular activities, community engagement and leadership. The ‘beyond money’ principle encourages the students to take advantage and think in terms of wider developmental opportunities offered by the donors.
This portfolio is also developed through partnerships with our donors, academic staff, Exeter alumni, and the students with the view to cultivating long term relationships that will lead to improved careers for our students.
