JLD BB&O Committee Members
I am a Trainee Solicitor at Clifton Ingram LLP, currently in my first seat within the family department.
I have been part of the committee for a number of years, firstly as Marketing Secretary, then Vice President and eventually taking over as President in September 2019. I am hoping to continue with the great work that the JLD BB&O has always done in organising a diverse range of social and educational events for our members.
I am a GDL graduate with a BA Honours in English and have completed the LPC LLM at the University of Law with a Distinction. Currently I am a Paralegal at Stephenson Law and will be commencing a Training Contact with them in October.
As Vice President on this committee, I hope to encourage students and solicitors alike in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire to join the JLD and take advantage of the events, benefits and advice this fantastic forum provides.
I am a Trainee Solicitor at Barrett & Co Solicitors doing an 18 month seat in Property with the intention of qualifying into Commercial Property and due to qualify in October 2022.
Recently appointed Regional Representative, I am the liaison for Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. I bring a lot of enthusiasm to the table and encourage individuals in our local regions to join the JLD BB&O as much as possible and bring new ideas to the table on new events, marketing, and networking. Having spent the last two years as the Administrator of the BB&O (Inc.) Law Society (and still ongoing), I have extensive background in how Law Societies run and use this knowledge to assist with the growth of the JLD BB&O as much as possible.
Following completion of my Law degree at the University of Exeter and the LPC/LLM at the University of Law, I commenced my training contract in September 2020 with Allan Janes. I joined the committee as the National Representative and my responsibilities include participating in national committee meetings and supporting and raising awareness of national JLD issues and events.
Hi, I am Jess! I am a first year trainee solicitor at a dispute resolution and litigation firm in Buckinghamshire. I graduated with an LL.B from the University of Law in Leeds in 2018, and then went on to complete my LPC and Masters of Law in Professional Legal Practice in 2019 at the London Moorgate campus. Before starting my training contract in August 2020, I worked for the Serious Fraud Office in London, undertaking evidence and document review for the bribery and corruption team.
I am a Regulatory Paralegal at Blake Morgan LLP and I am the Website Secretary for the BB&O JLD committee. As Website Secretary I hope to aid the JLD in providing useful and fun events that assist aspiring solicitors to enter the profession and build their professional network.
I am currently a Trainee Solicitor at Osborne Clarke, having previously worked as a Paralegal at Berwin Leighton Paisner and Mishcon de Reya. I joined the Committee as Marketing Secretary in October 2019 and I am involved in helping to promote the BB&O JLD and its events across various social media platforms.
I am a Trainee Solicitor at Bower Bailey Solicitors, having previous worked as a Paralegal in the Matrimonial and Family Department. I graduated from the University of Law with the GDL in August 2020 and I am currently studying towards the LPC LLM part time alongside my training contract.
I joined the Committee in November 2020 as the Sports Secretary with a view to promoting a sense of community within the legal industry in Berks, Bucks and Oxon through the power of social sports and exercise!
In my spare time I can mostly be found tearing around a netball Court at full speed.
I am a family solicitor at Penningtons Manches Cooper in Reading. I was recently on the Hertfordshire JLD committee before moving to my new role as Education Secretary for JLD BB&O committee. I am looking forward to getting involved in the committee, meeting new people and supporting a huge range of educational events.
I am a newly qualified Solicitor in the Dispute Resolution Department at Blaser Mills Law. As a general committee member, I am keen to get involved with the JLD Committee in as many ways as possible. I joined the committee to connect with other young professionals and to support the wider junior lawyers profession in as many ways as I can.
I am a trainee solicitor with Blandy & Blandy Solicitors and a General Member for JLD. I wanted to join the committee in order to both support and benefit from the community of junior lawyers. I hope to assist in continuing the support they provide.
