The Bill Law Student Memorial Award is a legacy and tribute to the work of Dr Bill Law, Founding Fellow of NICEC, who died in April 2017.  His work was recognised internationally and was significant in its impact on the way that career development is conceptualised and practised. The award will celebrate emerging innovation within the career development sector and importantly, the relationship between research, theory and practice. 

This is an award for a student who is on or has recently completed (within the last 12 months) any relevant programme such as anyone studying for a level 6 level in career development (including career leaders), PGDip/Masters/SCQF 11 and Doctoral students, a CIPD programme, or any international equivalent to these UK awards.

How to enter

There is a two-stage process: (1) submission of an abstract (outline, draft, or plan) of approximately 250 words (excluding references) by 6th January 2022

(2) a selection of abstracts will be invited to be developed into a 2,500 word written paper in a style which is in line with NICEC Journal writing style guide and submitted by Thursday April 7th 2022.  Entrants are free to choose their topic, but we anticipate that they will write about something they have learned whilst on their course or undertaking research or practice.  Only one entry per person is permitted.  The submission should present previously unpublished work.
