St Hugh’s Law Society Welcome The Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP

Nicky Morgan with three St Hugh's Law students

On the evening of 10th November, the St Hugh’s Law Society welcomed The Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP, former corporate lawyer and Secretary of State for Education, to deliver a lecture on the Westminster legislative process and Brexit.

Mrs. Morgan, who read Law at St. Hugh’s as an undergraduate from 1990-1994, was delighted to return to speak to current students. Reflecting on her experience at the college, Mrs. Morgan said, “I didn’t expect to come to Oxford…I think the point is the contacts, the networking you do here will stand you in good stead for whatever you do in life.”

Antonia Kendrick, co-President of the Law Society, added that students were equally humbled to be in the company of such a notable alumna: “The most enjoyable part of the talk was seeing the students’ engagement with Nicky, demonstrated by the wide range of questions they asked her. These covered a variety of topics including the relationship between MPs and their constituents, the possibility of electoral reform and the operation of academies.

Ryan Power, also President of the Law Society, shared his thoughts on the evening, commenting, “It was great to have Nicky back at St Hugh’s. It’s fantastic to see the former students of the College so willing to come back for this sort of thing and I think it’s good for the current students to see notable alumni maintaining a link with the College.”

The St Hugh’s Law Society and the College as a whole would like to thank Mrs Morgan for her continued engagement with St Hugh’s and its members.
