Mr Nabil Khabirpour was presented with a special recognition award for his significant contributions to pro bono work within the University.

Lucy Cavendish College is proud to announce that The Law Corner, a pro bono legal organisation founded and directed by College Fellow Nabil Khabirpour, was recently recognised at the Cambridge University Law Society Pro Bono Awards, along with the work of two of its student interns, Lily Greenhough and Qinglan Du.

Additionally, Mr. Khabirpour received a special recognition award for a significant contribution to the pro bono work of the Cambridge University Law Society and the Cambridge Faculty of Law. The Law Corner provides essential legal services to those with limited financial resources, guided by a commitment to access to justice. The organisation also offers a valuable platform for students and volunteers to gain practical legal experience and connect with a community of peers passionate about public interest law.

Nabil says, “In addition to the daily joy of working with others striving to improve the fortunes of society, it is an honour and source of encouragement for us to receive this recognition. These awards are a testament to the inspiring spirit of service imbued within the student body and those entering the profession. My heartfelt thanks go out to the Faculty, CULS, the College and the team at the Law Corner, particularly Claudia Dolgetta and Lucy alumni Rosa Matarewicz, for running this year’s Cambridge internship scheme.”

Mr. Khabirpour's academic research focuses on European Union Law, Human Rights, Access to Justice and Religion. He serves on the Editorial Board of the European Human Rights Law Review and brings substantial practical experience in international dispute resolution to both his scholarship and the mission of The Law Corner.

Lucy Cavendish College celebrates the commitment of The Law Corner and Mr. Khabirpour to expanding access to legal services and empowering students. Their work embodies the College's values of service and social responsibility.
