I am currently an Associate at Kennedys Law. I went to a state school in Shropshire and then to a Non-Russell group University where I studied law.

Following College I was interested in law but lacked any legal qualifications, family or friends in the legal profession, but I decided to study Law anyway. I graduated in 2020 during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic whilst working full-time in the care industry. My path to securing a training contract was not conventional, coming from a low-income family l constantly worked during my term holidays during my undergraduate degree. I also did not want to have just a degree on my CV and actively participated in numerous groups, work experiences and additional qualifications which has helped me distinguish myself from other applicants.

I did not have a training contract lined up following University and commenced my LPC LLM full-time online with the University of Law whilst again working full-time.

During the second half of my LPC I began actively applying for Paralegal opportunities and secured a role as a clinical negligence Paralegal. My Paralegal role helped me gain valuable eperience and develop my legal practical application of the law, I believe these skills led to my training contract offer in August 2021.

I am a strong believer that everyone should have access to opportunities no matter your background or resources. I have found that the process can be hard and difficult, however if you have the ambition, determination and are prepared to work hard it is possible to succeed. Please do not hesitate to get in contact with any questions about life as a Paralegal or Trainee.
