Education/Route taken to be a lawyer
I studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of York, before completing the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course MSc in Law, Business and Management at the University of Law in Leeds.
Why a Career in Law?
As much as I enjoy a philosophical discussion, during my undergraduate degree I found that I wanted something with more concrete answers that could be of use to people. There may be room for debate in some areas of law, but the answers I can find in law are far more useful to others than philosophical viewpoints.
What are the highlights of your work?
The variety – I enjoy not doing the same thing every day, and having new challenges to take on.
Area of work/specialisms
What interests you about your specific area of Law?
I enjoy the tangible nature of property, as I feel like the work I am doing has a real impact on the world.
What would be your “alternative” profession if you were not a lawyer?
Philosopher or a writer.
I enjoy baking (and watch the Great British Bake Off for ideas), reading manga and watching anime, and completing Escape Rooms with my friends.
