I am an associate in the Real Estate team at DAC Beachcroft. I have previously trained at King & Wood Mallesons and Latham & Watkins, as well as having spent time on secondment at Goldman Sachs. Prior to commencing work, I studied Law at Queen Mary University (London) and completed my legal practice course at BPP in Holborn.
My interest in pursuing a career in law stemmed from reading “Lawless World: America and the Making and Breaking of Global Rules ” by British author, Philippe Sands. This opened my eyes as to how the law is intertwined will all facets of society from the environment and human rights to politics and business.
Being from an underrepresented background, I understand the complexities and challenges that flow from seeking a career in law. I have been fortunate enough to study with people from a diverse range of backgrounds from school through to university and so I have never viewed my own background as a barrier to a legal career, but rather an opportunity to break the mould.
It can be easy to think that those with a career in law have reached this stage without the support of others but this is never the case. I can look to a long list of friends, family members, teachers and colleagues who have helped with career advice, interview preparation and motivational conversations.
Aspiring Solicitors offers the opportunity to discuss each of the career related questions you have with someone who has had to deal with similar issues in the past. Please do reach out if there is anything you would like to ask and I’d be happy to discuss and share any thoughts and experiences.
