I graduated from the University of Reading in 2015 and I am currently a part time BPTC student at the University of Law, graduating (hopefully) in 2017. I work full time during the week as a paralegal at a West Midlands firm – mainly in the litigation department, but generally getting involved in anything they throw at me.
