Trainee Solicitor

Litigation is a complex area of law spanning a wide range of legal issues. No two disputes are ever the same, which I find professionally interesting.

As a Trainee Solicitor at Burnett Barker Solicitors, life is professionally rewarding and fast-paced. To officially qualify as a Solicitor, which I hope to do within two years, I must practise as a Trainee Solicitor in four different seats (legal practice areas), which currently sees me supporting Litigation & Disputes Solicitor, Paul Herbert.

Having completed my Law Degree with the University of Law in 2021, I was initially welcomed into the team as a Wills & Probate Secretary where I began studying for my Legal Practice Course (LPC) and Master of Laws (LLM) qualifications before starting my Trainee Solicitor role in January 2023.

Litigation is a complex area of law spanning a wide range of legal issues from employment, property, trading, business partnership and shareholder disputes to defamation and slander. No two disputes are ever the same, which I find professionally interesting.

I already have a good understanding of the law in this area, but one of the many benefits of advising clients as a Trainee Solicitor is that I am supervised by Paul, who has many years of experience.

The working culture at Burnett Barker Solicitors is one of high support. Everyone genuinely cares about the people behind the legal work, which really appeals to me.

Outside work, when I’m not busy studying, I love spending time with my family and friends, whose support means a lot to me.

How Can I Help

I am currently supporting Litigation & Disputes Solicitor, Paul Herbert, on client legal matters.
