My role

I am currently a Legal Assistant within the Governance and Commercial team. I have been working closely with solicitors within the firm to expand our expertise and influence in environmental law. I will be starting as a trainee in 2020 and hope to continue my work in environmental law.

My experience

I have a degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Toronto, from which I went on to complete my LLB at the University of Birmingham. During my time in Birmingham, I was the lead on a joint research project with the University of Illinois, focusing on biodiversity initiatives within the EU ETS, as well as being the coordinator of the Environmental Law Matters (ELM) pro bono group.
