The University of Cambridge LLM offers a one-year taught masters programme, where students are required to take four courses. One of the course options is Comparative Family Law and Policy; the Mills & Reeve Prize is awarded to the top student or students on that course in the summer examination.

John Eldridge, a lecturer at the University of Sydney who won the prize said: “Studying Comparative Family Law and Policy on the LLM has been a fantastic experience. Prior to coming to Cambridge I had no real expertise in family law - indeed my background was predominantly in commercial law, a field I had worked in and taught in Australia. As such I was slightly apprehensive about taking up its study for the first time at graduate level. Though I faced a very steep learning curve, the course was incredibly rewarding. The instructors were inspiring and engaging, and we were encouraged to focus on challenging and controversial questions. There was a great deal of scope for independent reading and research. Though the Cambridge exam system is very rigorous, I felt that the family law seminars left me well-prepared to tackle the questions and demonstrate my understanding. The receipt of the Mills & Reeve Prize is a great honour, and has encouraged me to continue to pursue my newfound interest in family law.”
