“From personal experience, I know how difficult it can be to break into a career in law unless you have the right connections or fit into a particular mould. I am passionate about helping others overcome the hurdles I encountered. People should only be limited by the extent of their ambition and how hard they are prepared to work. Having the best talent from diverse backgrounds can only improve an organisation’s performance and ability to innovate.
It is a privilege to collaborate with colleagues on the Aspiring Solicitors Advisory Board, implementing action plans towards the elimination of the barriers preventing many excellent students from entering and staying in the legal profession.”
