Work and Professional

From 1993 to 1997 I studied Classics at New College, Oxford. I was awarded the Ella Stephens scholarship.

In 1997/8 I spent a year at Sydney Grammar School in Australia as a teaching fellow. I taught Latin, Greek and sport to children aged 11 to 18. I also acted as an instructor in the army cadets and as a pastoral tutor.

During that year I also coached hockey at St George’s Womens Hockey Club.

In 1998/1999 I studied the Graduate Diploma in Law at City University in London.

In 1999/2000, I took the Bar Vocational Course. I finished in the top 20 students in my year.

Whilst studying for the Bar Vocational Course, I was a tutor in Equity in Trusts for undergraduates in law at City University.

For several years I was a volunteer with the Bexley and Bromley Advocacy scheme, now known as Advocacy for All, working on projects assisting people with aspergers and autism.

In 2000-1 I undertook pupillage at 4 New Square. My pupil supervisors were Ben Hubble, Paul Parker and Sue Carr (now Mrs Justice Carr DBE). I became a member of chambers in September 2001.

Since joining chambers, the main areas of my work have been professional indemnity, disciplinary/regulatory, costs, property damage and contract/insurance disputes.
