Solicitor Sarah Monaghan has been crowned the winner of the Seventh Annual Procurement Lawyers' Association's (PLA) Rosie Choueka Memorial Essay Prize.

The essay competition was established in 2016 in memory of Rosie Choueka, a committed and hard-working member of the PLA’s Executive Committee who sadly passed away in 2015 following a valiant fight against breast cancer.

The competition encourages junior lawyers to submit essays based on a particular procurement topic, with this years' being “What role could public procurement play to address climate change?”.

Sarah will present her essay at the PLA's autumn event, where she will also receive her prize from Rosie's family.

Sarah commented:

"It is a great honour to be the recipient of this award. Given the climate emergency, this year's topic is one that is particularly pertinent for me – it is important to understand the ways in which public procurement can be used as an innovative tool to help tackle the climate change crisis."
