About

I am a part time law student in my penultimate year of study. I am also a full time mother of three and the partner of a games programmer. I took a circuitous route to university, but I think that in the end, this has contributed to my understanding of the subject. Law permeates everything, and I suppose being a little older gives you an opportunity to see how it all fits together.

I’ve tried for nearly a year to find something more secure than the Bar to commit to, but I’ve come full circle and I can’t escape. I don’t want to escape, I suppose. This blog has been created in order for me to chart my progress.

    Interesting article. Agree with much of it. You should remember though that, unlike solicitors, the Bar is trying to modernise all by itself – we don’t have HR departments or interviewing training, we run our own chambers while holding down busy practices. We just have to muddle through. Sometimes not to the best of effect, it’s true.

    Can I also gently suggest that you do have the sine qua non we’re looking for: you are a blogger on legal matters (anyone able to utilise technology for marketing purposes is regarded as a genius by most barristers) and write articles quoted by The Lawyer. Package that alongside the multi tasking that comes with being a mum and, if you’re any good at advocacy, you’ll persuade us that you’re worth more than a spotty teen who has spent their gap year building elephant shelters in Botswana.

    Finally, if you want any practical advice or assistance on coming to the Bar, please get in touch. I’d like to help.
