Dr Sarah Beazley

An alumna of the University of Hertfordshire, Sarah Beazley received an honorary Doctor of Laws for her contribution to the county and to the University of Hertfordshire. Sarah was High Sheriff of Hertfordshire for the 2019-2020 term, and was instrumental in setting up new services to benefit those in need of legal support and advice, while offering the University’s Law students valuable experience and opportunities to be involved in real cases. She supports a number of charities across Hertfordshire, and is a member of  the Professional Advisory Group supporting the  Hertfordshire Law School.

I could not be prouder to be associated with the University of Hertfordshire and with the Law School in particular, and I will continue to support their work in the future. To graduates: you set yourself a goal, you worked hard, you stuck to the plan, and you tasted success and achievement as a result. Your life is your story. It will contain many chapters, plot twists, lots of characters, perhaps some drama, and a huge range of emotions. As you write your story, prepare well. Be open to opportunity. Have a plan but be positive about plan b if you need to and be a little self-knowing along the way. Don’t compromise on happiness and surround yourselves with those that bring out the best in you. You have so much to look forward to as you write your story. Make it a great read.
