Alex studied law at the University of Leeds, where she graduated with a first class degree in the top 5% of her year and was awarded the University Prize for Jurisprudence. She then completed the BPTC in London and was awarded a Harmsworth Scholarship by the Middle Temple.
Prior to starting pupillage, Alex worked as a County Court Advocate for several years. She developed experience representing Claimants and Defendants alike in matters including small claims trials, road traffic accident claims, infant approval hearings, Stage 3 hearings, landlord and tenant disputes and mortgage possessions. Alex also spent two years working as a litigation paralegal both inside and outside of the UK and has experience in advising and representing clients on behalf of the Free Representation Unit and Citizens’ Advice Bureau.
Prior to a career in law, Alex lived and worked in Shenyang, China as an English language teacher after obtaining a teaching qualification from Beijing University of International Business and Economics in 2009.
Away from the Bar, you will likely find Alex wakeboarding or attempting to walk her enormous Alaskan malamute dog. She also (for unbeknown reasons) enjoys completing gruelling fitness challenges, including most recently Tough Mudder, Rough Runner and a half marathon. With any free time she has left, Alex volunteers as a Speaker and member of the Consultative Council for a national children’s charity, ‘NACOA’.
