Methodology

People think law students learn everything just from reading big paragraphs - I don't, haven't ever, and will never. I often use a very simple diagram that breaks down information so that when answering a question, the elements that have been broken down fit together like a jigsaw. Doing it like this helps to explain smaller elements in detail so that students are not overwhelmed by the analysis of a question. It acts as a step-by-step checklist to constructing the answer so that unless the details of one point have been included and checked off, you can't move onto the next. This also acts as a great reminder to not lose track of the basic important elements of writing analytical pieces of text - including analysis will not be commended if you have not shown how you've got there!

Experience

I have a Law Degree and legal work experience under my belt. My most recent achievements were undertaking a Commercial Law Internship Experience and obtaining a solicitors' award for achieving the highest marks in both parts of a Criminal Evidence competition. I am a really friendly, attentive, and proactive person who will always be there to encourage students and give them the perseverance they need. As a tutor, my aim will always be to have my students understand something they didn't before coming to me.

Victoria's CV

A punctilious, hardworking and confident law graduate with the ability to work within a team and independently. Through my work experience, I have acquired a solid understanding of the commercial aspects of a business.

Degree:
• Upper second-class honors in Law, achieving 68%.

Work experience:
John Hall Engineering Ltd – Junior Office Manager

• Drafted an updated lease for the company. Not only did this alleviate the Managing Director’s duties, it taught me the importance of dissecting information and putting it into a manageable and succinct format.
• Booked electrical installation certificate renewals and answered calls in the Managing Director’s absence. This was done in accordance with the company’s etiquette, so as to professionally represent the company.
• Worked with the Managing Director to review the issues of having a leasehold attached to a freehold and how to detach from it. This improved my ability to carry out legal research and analyse legal information.
• Used property legislation to resolve issues such as the legal requirements of a property transaction, how the previous Landlord can legally refuse rent and what to do should he wish to reclaim rent.

Blacks LLP

• Brought a new dimension of reflection to the firm, being praised for error-correcting contracts, understanding data protection clauses, and answering problem questions for Senior Associates.
• Increased productivity in several departments by contributing my assistance, carrying out research for commercial, employment, family and corporate solicitors. In turn, this allowed friendships with the HR team, paralegals, senior associates and partners to blossom easily.
• Wrote up file notes for the Partner. I clarified with the Partner the format and information to be focused on in the note, reflecting my attention to smaller details and confidence to liaise with senior staff.

Consilia Legal

• Discussed the firm’s open cases with the Directors, which strengthened my conversational ability around senior employees and understanding of how the solicitors negotiate with clients.
• Independently wrote a mediation blog and researched advances in family law. I used to my initiative to look past my unfamiliarity with the topic and put myself in the shoes of a prospective client, while loyally adhering to format instructions from the Director.
• Drafted a divorce petition which utilised my impeccable IT skills to document the client’s details and research any sections I did not understand. Doing these things also show I am proactive and a capable problem solver.
• Supported the Directors in client meetings by attending and making notes with jargon used by the Director. This taught me the empathy and confidence to channel as a solicitor, which I practice with friends who depend on me for support in difficult times.

Awards:
• Bright Network’s Commercial Law Internship Experience Certificate
• Harrison Bundy Solicitors Award 2019

Extra-curricular:
Volunteering - in 2018, I volunteered for 3 weeks in North India to support the Tibet Relief Fund, teaching special educational needs students new languages, arts therapy, sensory games, physical activity and gave general community support. Doing this helped me develop essential transferable skills, predominantly communication, team leadership, and flexibility as well as having a resilient attitude.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Victoria for over 2 years now.

She is highly motivated and has a strong passion for the law.

Victoria is also patient and has a temperament necessary for teaching and creating a strong learning environment.

No doubt, that these are qualities which will shine through her teaching of Criminal Law.
