Originally from Surrey, I studied Law and Spanish at Coventry University which allowed me to spend a year abroad at Universitat Jaume I in Spain. On completion of my degree I became a member of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple and attended the BPTC at BPP Holborn. I also took part in the Debating and Drama Societies at the Inner Temple and further developed my interest in sports and distance running. Since completing the BPTC, I have worked as a paralegal in a variety of areas of law and as a Case Administrator in the Offender Management Unit of a prison which gave me a great insight into many areas of the legal system. During pupillage I will be primarily undertaking criminal work however I am interested in the other areas practiced by Chambers and hope to experience these also.
I studied English Literature at the Queen’s College, Oxford, qualifying with a First class degree in 2013. After graduating, I taught English in Paris and then moved to Bristol to teach in a local secondary school. I completed the Graduate Diploma in Law and the Bar Professional Training Course at UWE Bristol before being called to the Bar at Gray’s Inn in July 2018.
My first six pupil supervisor is Barry McElduff. I shall be spending most of the first six on criminal cases, but I also hope to gain some experience of civil and family law in order to maintain a broad practice in preparation for my second six.
