Hello! My name is Emma and I have been studying law for a total of five years. Within this time I have become thoroughly confident in the subject and attained a first class degree. I have undertaken extensive legal experience (mini-pupillages, shadowing and worked as part of the CLOCK program) and am willing to pass my knowledge on to someone else. If you are an AS/A level student, or an undergraduate law student I would be happy to help you.
How can I help? Throughout my time of study I have developed techniques that have aided me in achieving the best grades possible in exams or coursework. Help will therefore begin with exam preparation or essay planning. From there, I will provide any help that you need in explaining the essential content. This can be very much on your terms: I would be more than willing to cover the whole content of the course and provide extensive notes; or to simply explain the bits you dont understand!
I am a friendly, approachable and hard working person who would be happy to provide you the assistance you need in passing your legal exams.
During A level I did not have a law teacher (this was something that my sixth form were not able to provide at the time) and I thus taught myself. I had no previous knowledge of the law at all and so this was an extremely challenging venture. I emerged from A levels with a 'B' which I considered to be a sincere achievement.
At university I have developed my legal knowledge vastly. I have worked as a part of the CLOCK program for two years, working within the court to provide free legal assistance to those who are struggling to understand the system. This has allowed me to develop my skills in communicating and teaching legal concepts and has seen me aid a number of parties.
I am due to graduate with a first class degree.

Legal Work Experience
Community Legal Outreach Collaboration Keele (CLOCK): Continuing - I was successful in being selected to volunteer as a Legal Companion at Stoke Combined Court Centre. CLOCK is an initiative set up by Keele University in order to guide those who, because of cuts to legal aid, do not have assistance. As a legal companion, I am able to help clients on a one to one basis by assisting in filling out forms, signposting to charities and supporting clients whilst they appear in court. Within this role, I have also had extensive training in preparing court bundles and note taking. Being part of the CLOCK programme means that I am able to gain practical experience in dealing and communicating with clients on my own. Furthermore, CLOCK works closely with organisations such as CAFCASS, The YMCA, SAVANA, ARCH, ASPIRE and many others giving me a good knowledge of supporting bodies.
Liverpool Civil Court Centre: 20th-23rd July 2015 – I was invited to marshal Judge Stephen Parker at Liverpool Civil Court Centre. This was an invaluable and exciting opportunity, where I was able to learn from respected and experienced members of the law community.
Mini-pupillage at No 5 Chambers, Birmingham: 5th-8th May 2015 - I completed a mini-pupillage at No 5 Chambers in Birmingham. Whilst there, I was fortunate in gaining experience with a number of barristers practicing in a wide variety of areas including criminal, family, commercial and chancery and personal injury. I found this mini-pupillage very informative and advantageous in developing my professional experience. I gained an insight into the fast-paced work of a barrister which confirmed my determination and aspirations to continue studying to follow a career as a barrister.
BPTC Manchester Taster Day: 22nd April 2015 - I attended a taster day at BPP Manchester. Whilst there, I gained useful information about the route to becoming a barrister. We were also invited to take part in mooting to gain some practical insight.
Shrewsbury Crown Court, Victim Support: September 2013 - I completed one week’s work experience at Shrewsbury Crown Court with Victim Support. This allowed me to observe and gain a better understanding into how the court works. I also gained an invaluable insight into how a court trial can affect victims.
Elliot Bridgeman Solicitors: September 2011 - I spent one week at Elliot Bridgeman solicitors in Shropshire. I was placed in the mental health department where I was able to attend meetings with clients. I was trusted to type minutes from the meetings and prepare them for court later. This gave me an insight into a legal firm and the work that one would expect to undertake.
Through this consistent work experience I have shown that I am committed to studying Law and am determined to follow my aspiration for a career as a barrister. I have proved to be trustworthy and capable in dealing with sensitive and confidential information. I am also well-practised and confident in communicating with clients.
Minhs Cantonese Restaurant: 2012-present- I currently work in a Cantonese restaurant as a part-time waitress. This has enabled me to put my customer service skills to use and to become confident in dealing with people. I also organise the part-time staffs’ rota. I have proven that I am a willing, hardworking, punctual, and loyal team member, working alongside ten other members of staff to ensure the restaurant runs smoothly.
Haughton Hall Hotel – I have recently undertaken an additional job as a chambermaid at Haughton Hall Hotel, where I have demonstrated that I am able to work competently on my own.
Through working two part-time jobs whilst also attending university I have proved that I am able to manage my own time effectively and have a strong work ethic.
Hobbies and Interests
I am a member of my university Law and Barrister Societies and participate fully in all events.
I am a member of a netball team and play in two leagues where I use my team-working and dedication skills effectively. I also enjoy travel, reading, films and music.
After leaving Sixth Form I embarked on a back-packing trip around Europe for a month. I organised the trip independently, and visited six countries. The success of this trip was a personal achievement as my forward planning, organisation and knowledge of local information ensured that the journey ran smoothly. Following this trip I successfully set up a business advising like-minded travellers on how best to plan their journeys.
