Trainee Solicitor

 

I graduated from the University of Huddersfield in 2017 with First Class Honours in Law and I was awarded a place on the Dean's List of Excellence for exceptional performance.  I have recently completed my postgraduate studies at BPP University in Leeds where I obtained a Distinction in the Legal Practice Course incorporating a Masters in Law. 

During my time at University I was able to take part in various work experience opportunities, including Pro Bono work at BPP where I was a Legal Advisor, interviewing clients and providing advice on different areas of law such as property and family.  

I first took an interest in law during my A Level studies where I undertook independent research into high profile criminal cases, leading me to study law at University.  I chose to pursue a career in law as I enjoy both the research element and the client-facing role it involves.  

I started my practical experience in 2017, working as a Legal Assistant.  I joined Legal Studio in 2018 and having worked as a Paralegal at the firm for a year, I was delighted to be offered a training contract to enable my progress and development at Legal Studio.  The firm is highly proactive in wanting to develop their employees.  There is always support available if needed as there is a great team atmosphere and I feel like I am constantly learning.  

I currently work within the Commercial Litigation Department, my day to day role involves reacting to contractual issues and advising on non-performance and breach of contract.  

In my spare time I enjoy taking long countryside walks with my dog, Stanley.  I also enjoy reading and you will probably catch me with a book on a lunchtime!
