Background

Rebecca was called to the Bar in 2010 having completed the Bar Vocational Course at the College of Law (now the University of Law). She has been a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and cross-qualified to be a solicitor. After successfully completing the Higher Rights Examinations in both Criminal and Civil Law she was successful in obtaining a full exemption from pupillage due to her qualifications and level of experience.

She completed a Masters of Laws degree and the Legal Practice Course with Masters of Science part-time whilst working in full time roles and achieved a distinction in both.

Between 2010 and 2014 Rebecca worked as a self-employed advocate appearing before District and Circuit Judges daily in a wide range of civil matters. In September 2014 she moved to an in-house advocacy department of a nationwide solicitors firm focusing on personal injury matters and contractual disputes. She undertook hearings in person and via telephone and prepared advices on quantum and liability.

Having moved firms, Rebecca then worked as a case handler and performed advocacy as and when required by the firm on both her files and those of other case handlers. She therefore fully understands the expectations of her professional and lay clients and has gained a reputation for exceeding those expectations.

She has particular interest in Housing and Employment Law, having studied both as part of her LL.M.
