Our Volunteers

And yes, we do have an evergrowing number of volunteers ready to help you out!

Miroslava Dimitrova

Community Law Project - Paralegal

My name is Miroslava Dimitrova and I am a recent BPTC LLM Graduate currently living in Leeds and volunteering with West Yorkshire Police. I have always been interested in law growing up in a country with a corrupt Criminal Justice System. I am an aspiring barrister passionate about criminal law and the implications of the UK CJS on youths. My work with Cardiff Innocence Project and volunteering with South Wales Police during my undergraduate Law and Criminology studies at Cardiff University made me realise that everyone deserves a legal representation and a fair trial regardless of the crime they have committed. Often there are underlying complex socio-economic issues involved, acting as the driving force for commission of crime. I have experience working with vulnerable and difficult clients and possess excellent advocacy and drafting skills. 

James Sinclair

Community Law Project - Paralegal

I'm James, a final year Law student from Newport. As clich√© as it sounds, I first got interested in law when I watched Suits all those years ago but it wasnt until I did work experience with Watkins & Gunn that I realised the real world of law was totally different from the glamour of American dramas; and that was not a bad thing. I became deeply fascinated by the more personal aspects of of the law with closer regard to the impact on the individual rather than societal policy considerations. With my current work as a clerk at the Cardiff Civil and Famoy Justice Centre, I have been given a much more intimate look into the process of bringing a case to trial and getting to witness a huge variety of these each and every day has been eye opening. The most rewarding part of the job so far has been seeing the enormous impact of a judge's decision on a child's future where they may not have otherwise had one, or it would have been less than ideal. The areas of law I most want to work in are Family, Clinical Negligence and Wills & Probates. I hope I can provide you with the support and service you both need and deserve.

Megan Vicary

Community Law Project - Paralegal

Heya! My name is Megan Vicary and I've just graduated with a Politics and History degree. I am hoping to pursue a Law conversion course in the future with the end goal of going into social welfare law, either practicing or advocating for reform on the policy side of things. I am most passionate about expanding access to legal aid. Relentless cuts have left the legal aid services severely under-resourced, leaving too many people without proper access to advice and representation.

Shawn Francine Alexandra Reo

Community Law Project - Paralegal

My name is Shawn Francine Alexandra Reo, and I am an incoming Magister Juris (MJur) student at The University of Oxford. Additionally, I hold a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from The Hague University of Applied Sciences with a year abroad at The University of Lincoln, where I studied Law and Criminology, and a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) from The University of Law. My interest in law piqued as I took part in a legal mentorship program in high school, whereby I developed a fresh understanding of the intricate legal narratives there are in law. My passion lies in the areas of public policy, social justice, and white-collar crime. Ultimately, I aspire to practice as a solicitor and promote justice in the aforementioned above.

Shauna McGinn

Community Law Project - Paralegal

My name is Shauna and I am currently a second year Law student at Cardiff University. My interest in law stemmed from studying law at A level where I was drawn to not only the academically stimulating nature of the subject but also its relevance to everyday life. Much of my work experience has been in supporting low-income families so I am eager to be involved with a project that aligns with my values. I have particularly enjoyed the intricacies of Contract Law during my degree as well as Media Law and Intellectual Property Law. However, I am still early in my legal journey and ready to experience new and challenging practice areas.

Cassandra Stead

Community Law Project - Paralegal

My name is Cassandra, and I am a final year Bachelor of Business Administration student specialising in finance at BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo, Norway. I will soon be starting my legal studies at BPP Law School commencing the LLM Law and Legal Practice Course in September 2021. I am interested in law because of how varied it is, and the international, challenging and stimulating nature of the day to day work. I aspire to work as a commercial lawyer with a focus on finance law.
