This visit proved to be a fascinating affair as Michelle spoke engagingly about her illustrious career and the role of a barrister in the English legal LAW system. We were provided with an invaluable insight into some of her most interesting cases and the qualities great lawyers need.This experience galvanised us all and furthered our aspirations of being solicitors and barristers.
