Ewoenam Genevieve Atiase

Community Law Project - Paralegal

I am Ewoenam Genevieve Atiase, a postgraduate Maritime Law (LLM) student at the University of Southampton. Curiosity may have been the most influencing factor for my decision to study law at an undergraduate level, which eventually caused me to develop a passion for the subject. I enjoyed learning about different aspects of law and its impact on society but what I found intriguing was how Ghana's Legal System has been hugely shaped by the English Legal System. My passion led to a heightened interest in legal disputes concerning issues related to shipping and trade and finally aroused an interest in maritime law. My interests and experience are in corporate and commercial practice, legal forensics and maritime law.

Theophila Akpenyi-Hilary

Community Law Project - Paralegal

Hello, my name is Theophila Akpenyi-Hilary. I am a first class LLB Law graduate from Coventry University and I am currently undertaking an LLM Maritime law programme at the University of Southampton. My motivation to study law emerged from my interest in Nigeria's governance and politics. Frequently watching the news from an early age, I was convinced a vast area of the law particularly the criminal justice system was in dire need of reform. In secondary school, I studied modules including Government and Civic education which further heightened my interest in the law. However, when I started my law degree my interest digressed from a career in criminal law towards corporate and commercial law particularly marine international trade. To confirm my interest in commercial law, I was an outreach volunteer in the magistrate and crown court where I prepared witnesses for trial. I also undertook work experience in a high street law firm where I worked on cases in family law, immigration and property and conveyancing. Although I found the work interesting, I desired a more intellectually challenging role and I was convinced commercial law would give me that satisfaction I craved. I travelled to Bangkok to intern at a commercial law firm that had one of its strongest practice areas in maritime law. The difficulty in understanding a lot of concepts in the research I undertook in both wet and dry shipping was intriguing and highly challenging and I also found it fascinating how important the role of shipping is in the global economy. This informed my unregrettable decision to pursue a career in maritime law. ​  

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.

Sophie Ashworth

Community Law Project - Paralegal

My name is Sophie Ashworth. I am in my penultimate year of university, studying law at the University of Kent. I have always been fascinated by the law and the way it impacts people's lives. I love the idea of being able to help other people and businesses with my expertise, which is one of the many reasons as to why I want to go into law. Lawyers are portrayed in so many ways: one being the enchanting Harvey Specter side where the law seems effortless and the other being the stereotypical lawyer with no social life. I am interested in finding out the true reality of legal practice throughout my own experience. Commercial law interests me in particular because I like the idea of being able to incorporate real life issues into legal situations while working in a fast-paced and challenging environment. Equally, technology law is a growing sector which I am very fond of after studying a technology module at university. 

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.

Patricia Ivanoiu

Community Law Project - Paralegal

My name is Patricia Ivanoiu and I am an LLB (Hons) European Legal Studies undergraduate at University of Westminster as well as a Languages First Class graduate from Petroleum Gas University of Ploiesti, Romania. I am in my third year of undergraduate legal studies and currently partaking in a year of study abroad at University of Bologna, Department of Legal Studies. My interest in law stems from my admiration of the primary role of a lawyer: being a support for the one who seeks legal help. This interest of mine was affirmed not only by my extracurricular activities, but also by my involvement in the Westminster Legal Advice Clinic as a student advisor where I am able to give free legal advice to the members of the community in the area of employment law. Besides this proper experience in employment law I also possess a genuine interest and understanding of commercial and property law.

Stacey Krasniqi

Hi! My name is Stacey Krasniqi, and I am currently taking my LLM Master of Law at the University of Law. I have always been passionate about human rights and was drawn to study law purely out of my desire to help disadvantaged groups in society. I am excited to be a part of this project as I strongly believe that access to legal assistance should be available to everyone. Alongside my studies I enjoy writing articles navigating and reporting the law on hate crime in the UK, as well as providing developments on information about support available for victims and potential victims. I have keen interests in immigration law, human rights law and employment law. My aspiration after completing my master’s degree is to become a paralegal and I am certain that this experience will benefit me immensely in my journey. 

Krishney Gosai

Community Law Project - Paralegal

Hello! My name is Krishney Gosai and I am a final year LLB Law undergraduate at the University of Southampton. My decision to study Law at University was initiated by my willingness to question and challenge legal conventions that are deeply rooted within society, in order to gain an understanding of how they operate to form the foundations of fairness and justice. Studying Law at GCSE provided me with a valuable introduction to the English legal system and I gained an awareness of the mechanics of legality through examining cases and applying the legal rule to problem questions. During my work experience at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, I work shadowed a Lawyer who specialised in Dispute Resolution, where I became familiar with the concepts of Corporate and Commercial Law, and learnt the value of reaching a settlement where each parties' needs are considered and met. The areas I am passionate about are Company Law, Family Law and Intellectual Property Law. My future aspirations include qualifying as a solicitor and studying Law at University has allowed me to become an independent thinking individual with a strong understanding of the purpose and implications of the principles that govern our legal system.

Laura Murphy

Community Law Project - Paralegal

I am Laura Murphy, currently studying the GDL at the University of Law, Manchester campus. I have an undergraduate degree in Philosophical studies from Newcastle University and a place at ULAW to do the LLM next year. My interest in law derived from my interest in Philosophy, which forms the foundations of multiple subjects including law! Ethical practices and political frameworks can be found in the works of a variety of key philosophical thinkers, so an undergraduate degree in philosophy complements my career choice well. I've always had a passion for helping others, whilst simultaneously learning things about the world we inhabit. I am most interested in Criminal Law, Tort Law and Family law. One day I hope to become a successful solicitor.
