James Libson receives Honorary Doctorate from University of Law

On Wednesday 25th April, Executive Partner and Head of Mishcon Private James Libson was presented with an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Law.

Of the honour, James said, "I feel surprised, privileged and extremely pleased in equal measures."

He also urged students to not "be cynical. Law remains an amazing profession and the law and lawyers are more important and relevant today than they have been for a long time.  Be open to change because it is happening and happening quickly.  Specialise and be the best at what interests you, but be open to variety and outside influences."
