Immigration Adviser | Clifford Chance LLP
I am an immigration lawyer at Clifford Chance LLP. I qualfied through CILEx which saw me balancing my studies whilst gaining valuable experience in immigration law as a full time paralegal. CILEx is a long route to qualification but the advantage is that your student debt is comparatively lower, and you can focus on your preferred area of specialism in your work based training. I am hugely passionate about law and believe it should be viewed as a career option for anyone, regardless of their back ground. I encourage aspiring lawyers to pursue the CILEx route to qualification on a regular basis, particularly though PRIME which is a social mobility initiative aimed at broadenting access to the legal profession.
In addition to the mental challenge my job provides on a daily basis, I also love a physical challenge and I recently completed the London Marathon and Mens Health Survival of the Fittest. I also volunteer to cook at serve breakfast to the homeless at Whitechapel Mission in east London.
