Trainee Solicitor | PwC
- State School Educated
- Religion and/or Belief
Coming from a comprehensive school which, despite having an annual year group of over 200, has only produced one trainee solicitor thus far (myself), I have some familiarity with approaching the legal profession from a less than traditional background and getting a foot in the door. I have spent several years fulfilling mentoring and tutoring roles and as a Professional Ambassador I will be able to harness these skills to help people aspiring to be solicitors reach their potential.
I am currently fourth-seat trainee solicitor in PwC’s corporate team, and have previously completed rotations in real-estate, pensions and tax litigation. My journey thus far has taught me that confidence and self-belief are very important to overcome any perceived disadvantages. I am passionate about diversity and inclusiveness and relish the opportunity to speak to students and people from BME and comprehensive school backgrounds on the possibilities and opportunities that are attainable in the legal profession.
