As the search for pupillage begins, I am always happy to share good advice that I pick up along the way.

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. Join me as I battle through the trials and tribulations of trying to find pupillage!
