Solicitor | Pinsent Masons
- Limited previous work experience
- First generation lawyer
- Economics and geography graduate
I was born in Romania, and shortly after I moved to Italy where I went to primary and secondary school. I moved again to Belgium where I finished high school and applied to go to university in the United Kingdom. I have a very non-UK background and English is not my first language.
I graduated from the University of Birmingham in Economics & Geography in 2015, and completed my GDL and LPC at the University of Law. After two rounds of training contract applications and various interviews and assessment centres, I obtained a training contract with Pinsent Masons. I have now qualified in the Restructuring team at the firm.
I am happy to help with any queries regarding training contract applications, training contract and career path. Also, if you want to chat to someone that does not have a UK or traditional law background, feel free to contact me.
My advice is that every application, every interview and every assessment centre are a valuable experience, regardless of the result. Try to not get discouraged by rejections, learn from them and most importantly be yourself throughout the whole application process.
