I am currently a Trainee Solicitor at DWF, having commenced my Training Contract in September 2021. I graduated from the University of Liverpool with a LLB Law degree. As soon as I graduated, I decided to self-fund the LPC at BPP University whilst working, with the hope of finding full-time legal work and securing a Training Contract.

During and post-study, I gained practical legal experience by working within several Paralegal roles. I worked as a document review Paralegal, an in-house Financial Services Paralegal and a Corporate Immigration Paralegal. Throughout my time paralegalling, I was balancing applying for Vacation Schemes and Training Contracts. I spent my time researching the commercial firms and areas of law that were of interest to me. In addition, as I had been a member of AS since university, I had taken part in numerous AS networking events and application workshops. Through these various experiences, I was fortunate enough to gain two Training Contract offers.

As a first generation, ethnic minority lawyer, I am extremely passionate about promoting diversity and increasing access to the legal profession. Throughout the application process, I realised how valuable our diverse backgrounds are and that it is in fact a strength when applying to firms. A key component of the legal profession is connecting with people – our diversity make us unique and allows us to relate to, and understand, a whole variety of different people beyond simply the legal industry.

I have personally and professionally benefitted from having mentors and wish to pay it forward to the next generation of future lawyers. I understand how challenging and competitive the process of securing a training contract can be. Therefore, please feel free to get in touch – I am more than happy to provide support and answer any questions!
