I grew up and attended state school in the North East of England. After completing my A-Levels, I studied LLB law with French law at University of Birmingham and Université Paris II Panthéon-Assas. Whilst at university, I had opportunities to complete various legal internships through building my own network and making unsolicited applications. I believe in making your own opportunities happen.
After my degree, I spent time working as a paralegal in Newcastle Upon Tyne, before studying for the fast track LPC course at BPP Holborn.
I appreciate that the training contract application process and the legal profession can appear challenging from the outside. I’d be happy to pass on what I have learnt by going through the process and entering the profession myself.
