Profile:

I’m a trainee solicitor at Stephenson Harwood due to qualify in September 2022. I grew up in North West London and I’m Jewish by background. I went to a comprehensive state school where I sat my GCSEs and A Levels. I then went to Bristol University to do an undergraduate degree in law before working as a paralegal for 13 months at another law firm. I then took a year out to go travelling before completing the LPC at BPP. I started my training contract at Stephenson Harwood in September 2020.

Coming from a minority background myself, I’m passionate about diversity both in terms of increasing representation of minority ethnic groups in law but also seeing greater diversity in relation to social mobility. I’m part of Stephenson Harwood’s social mobility network so I’m trying to play my part in helping to make the legal profession more accessible to all wannabe lawyers. I’ve joined the Aspiring Solicitors professional ambassador programme for this reason too.

Applying for training contracts can be a daunting process at the best of times but reaching out to people already working in the profession is a great way to gain a real insight into the legal world, build your network and ultimately help you secure a training contract. I know it helped me! Feel free to drop me a message about anything law related and I will try to answer all your questions!
