About my career

After I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan in 2009, I interned at Quamina Scott and Associates Sangre Grande, Trinidad and Tobago. After this internship, I was called to the Bar in 2010.

I found my internship so helpful that I now accept students from the local law school. I have my own practice “Veritas” where I conduct a general practice on criminal, civil, family, conveyancing, probate and industrial law. 

My post-graduate LPC, from which I graduated with commendation, was the necessary academic qualification for me becoming an attorney in Law.

The key skills that my degree taught me were legal writing, research, interviewing, advocacy and the ability to approach the study and practise of law in a practical manner.

My top tip for students is…

Be brave and assertive. Apply to as many firms as possible, and if you want to be an advocate, attend court hearings as often as possible to gain relevant experience of the proceedings and atmosphere.

I’m inspired by…

The staff at MMU inspired me. They were all very professional, welcoming, and helpful.

Why I love Manchester Met

The professional manner in which the course was conducted and the caring nature of the staff.
