8. Cambridge University Prize

Alan Mak in his CV claimed "First in my family to go to university (Law at Cambridge & Top of Year prizewinner)".

However, this statement is untrue.

There there were three prizes for best overall performance:

  • The Sweet and Maxwell Prize
  • The Clifford Chance David Gottlieb Prize
  • The Slaughter and May Prize

and Alan Mak was not awarded one of these prizes although he was awared one of the 17 other subject prizes, see HERE.
