Izaan Khan edges BPP Law School graduate to win return transatlantic flight

A second year law student from the London School of Economics has emerged triumphant in The Cyber Crime Blogging Prize, run by Legal Cheek and US state Bar exam preparation provider BARBRI International.

Izaan Khan’s entry on the future of cyber crime impressed the competition’s judges, managing director of BARBRI International Sarah Hutchinson and the executive vice president of the Association of Certified Financial Crime Specialists (ACFCS) Garry Clement. The article, which argues for the introduction of a free speech defence in cyber crime, can be read on the Legal Cheek Journal here.

Izaan’s entry narrowly pipped runner-up Andras Kirkman-Kovacs, a BPP law grad, to the post. He wins a one-year ACFCS membership and the chance to become ACFCS certified. The three other shortlisted entrants — Marina Perry, Andrew Chan and Ryan Gaskell — win a one-year ACFCS membership. Their blogs will be published in the Legal Cheek Journal in the coming weeks.

Izaan will receive his prize at BARBRI’s American Independence Party in London on 4 July. The party is open to all, and you can register to attend here.
