About me

Enthusiastic student at Edinburgh University studying law. I am currently in my third year of law where I will be studying Intellectual Property and Criminal Law. I am keen to build on my legal experiences and to develop further skills for a career as a legal professional. I also have an interest to build my understanding of areas such as business and accounting in order to have a breadth of knowledge alongside a law degree
