Announcement of Peter
Peckard Prize Winner 2015
The College is very happy to announce the second award of the Peter Peckard Prize, established last year in honour of one of our most distinguished eighteenth century Masters, an early campaigner against the slave trade. The prize is funded by the generosity of two alumni, and is awarded for an essay or similar composition on the subject of modern forms of slavery.
Out of a strong and interesting field, the judges chose an essay entitled ‘Protecting Trafficking Victims from Prosecution: Analysis of the Modern Slavery Bill Defence’, written by Jessica Pham of Downing College. This essay considers Clause 45 of the Modern Slavery Bill, which introduces a specific defence for victims of trafficking who have committed criminal offences in the United Kingdom. Jessica will receive the award at the prize giving event on 11 June this year attended by the Master, Senior Fellows and the two alumni whose donations made this prize possible.
