Prestigious Leverhulme Prize awarded to Leeds researcher

Professor Pinar Akman, Director of the Centre for Business Law and Practice, has been awarded a valuable Philip Leverhulme Trust Prize.


The Philip Leverhulme Prizes recognise researchers at an early stage of their career, whose work has already attracted significant international recognition, and whose future research career is exceptionally promising. Prize winners receive an award of £100,000 which may be used to promote further research.

Professor Akman is an expert in competition law and will use the Prize to further her research, in particular, in the area of competition law and online technology markets.

The prize money will enable Professor Akman to focus on researching some of the most controversial and topical aspects of the application of competition law in the next two to three years.

Dr Katie Field, Associate Professor in the School of Biology, has also recently been awarded a prestigious Philip Leverhulme Trust Prize, which you can read more about on For Staff.
