I graduated with a degree in Law with European Law from the University of Nottingham, having spent a year at the University of Copenhagen with the Erasmus programme.
Whilst at university, I was Head of the Howard League for Penal Reform Nottingham Group, in which capacity I organised numerous visits to prisons and talks with ex-offenders to raise awareness of the challenges faced by the justice system. I complemented my studies with diverse volunteer work from teaching school children about human rights to giving legal advice to prisoners on the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. I was invited as a speaker at the 10th European Pro Bono Forum in Amsterdam to speak on the topic of “Legal Careers with Purpose.” I won a scholarship to represent the European Law Students’ Association as an international delegate to the United Nations’ Committee Against Torture’s 57th Session in April of last year.
Having moved to Southampton to join the Hybrid Legal team, I support and grow our clients’ valued businesses, working to protect their intellectual property and providing guidance on commercial and consumer contracts. When not depleting the office tea supply, meeting with clients or out networking, I spend my time playing weird horse sports and exploring Hampshire.
