Speaking about Dr Fisher's approach to assessment and feedback, the nomination noted that: "Matt Fisher is a quite outstanding lecturer and mentor... Uniquely in Laws, he includes a group assessment, encouraging students to develop team-working skills alongside the traditional lawyerly skills required to complete the coursework...His support to students to understand and engage with the process, resulting in an alternative perspective and highly effective learning, is phenomenal."

In terms of research supervision, one of his proposers stated: "I truly feel like I won the lottery finding Matt as a research supervisor... From the moment I reached out to him to gauge his interest in taking me on, I felt I connected with a person who was interested and engaged in my research. He's guided me through the ups and downs of the PhD process ever since and I can't imagine taking on this journey with anyone else."

We would like to congratulate Matt, along with the other winners of this year's awards!
