My decision to choose the Law Clinic module in the third year of my Law degree was based upon the fact that I wanted to become a solicitor. When choosing this module, the key criteria that stood out to me was that I would be dealing with real-life clients and giving them legal advice. One of the main jobs of a solicitor is to meet clients, take their instructions and then produce letters of advice; therefore participating in the Law Clinic module was a no-brainer for me to gain relevant experience.
Some time ago I completed my PhD. The final conceptualisation of my research findings was represented as a model. I have always found that providing models of complex ideas or procedures is helpful to myself and people I work with. A model can be used as a tool to scaffold productive and focused thinking. My PhD was titled ‘Metamorphosis, model-making and meaning; developing exemplary knowledge for teacher education’. To cut a long research journey short I produced a new model which (typically for me has been recently re-modelled) and is now called The CoG Model of Professional Learning. Let me tell you how it works.

I was very fortunate to have been offered a place to study on the LLB Law degree having previously come from a non-academic background. I originally came to Leeds Beckett in 2016 to study music technology and though I received excellent grades in my first year, I did not feel this was the right course for me. While the jump from a practical music degree to a law degree was big, the transition was seamless, and the academic staff were incredibly supportive.
