Solicitor | Michelmores LLP
- Ethnic minority
- State school educated
- First generation lawyer
I am currently a solicitor at Michelmores LLP. I studied law at the University of Bristol and graduated in 2012. Prior to completing the LPC, I worked as a Paralegal. I later completed the LLM LPC at the University of Law, Bristol before starting my training contract in 2016 and qualifying in 2018.
Being a first-generation lawyer, I had no connections in the legal field. It was therefore difficult to get exposure to the industry at the early stages of my education and career. Nevertheless, following completion of a number of work placements and working as a Paralegal, I was fortunate enough to be offered a training contract.
It is well known that the legal profession is becoming increasingly more demanding. From my own experiences, I appreciate the difficulties and obstacles some who wish to pursue a career in law face. I am therefore keen to help increase access to the profession. I also believe that diversity within the legal profession is critical and support Aspiring Solicitors’ goal of increasing the same.
