Lauren is currently completing a Common Law pupillage under the supervision of Elizabeth Lugg. As a Second Six pupil, Lauren accepts instructions across all areas of Chambers’ practice.
In the year preceding her pupillage, Lauren worked as a County Court Advocate appearing in front of the District Bench in relation to a range of private civil matters. She acted on behalf of Claimants and Defendants in Small Claims, as well as children in Infant Approval hearings.
Recognised for her personable character, Lauren can establish a rapport with clients with ease. She adopts a pragmatic approach to all cases, and has an eye for detail.
Lauren has a keen interest in Family Law. She was formerly a member of family team at Northumbria University Student Law Office, a legal clinic offering pro-bono advice and representation. She later worked at local Solicitors Firm dealing exclusively with Private Family matters and Matrimonial Finance. Lauren has developed her experience across all areas of Family Law throughout her pupillage.
During First Six, Lauren attended a number of Crown Court trials and short appointments in the Magistrates Court. She has gained experience across a range of Chambers’ criminal practise areas and is eager to accept instruction in this field.
In her spare time, Lauren can be found hiking in Scotland’s West Coast.
