Law School Attended
Trainee solicitor | Travers Smith
- Non-Russell Group university
- State school educated
- First generation to go to university
I am a first year trainee at Travers Smith LLP. I started my training contract in March 2018 with a seat in Dispute Resolution. My second seat will be in the firm’s Private Equity team. I graduated from the University of Westminster in 2015 with First Class Honours and completed the LPC at BPP University in 2017.
I strongly believe in the value of diversity and the importance of recognising that talent comes in all different forms. Aspiring Solicitors provides fantastic opportunities which people from non-traditional backgrounds might not otherwise have. I know how valuable it was for me to have someone in the profession to talk to which I gained through a mentoring scheme. I now want to help others who similarly might benefit from a discussion with somebody who is on the other side of the application process and wholeheartedly welcome any AS members to get in touch.
