Child Care Law
Katharine is a trainee solicitor in our Child Care Department. She works alongside the Head of Department and represents parents and children in care proceedings brought by social services. To date, she has worked on cases involving a number of issues such as factitious and induced illness, domestic abuse and drug and alcohol abuse.
Katharine was previously in the Property Department, during which time she assisted the Head of Department, focusing on residential transactions.
Katharine read Classics at Royal Holloway University of London, graduating with upper second-class honours. It was in her final year that she studied Ancient Greek law and law courts, compelling her to pursue a career in law.
Prior to completing the GDL and LPC MSc in Law, Business and Management at the University of Law, Guildford, Katharine volunteered in Nepal with sustainable development organisation Raleigh International. Her work also involved trekking across the Ganesh Himal Mountain range whilst educating the local communities on health and sanitation.
During her legal studies, Katharine volunteered with the National Centre for Domestic Violence and enjoyed partaking in Mooting and Surrey Law Society’s Client Interviewing competition.
In her own time, Katharine enjoys exercising and being outdoors. She also holds a great appreciation of the arts, whether visiting museums or trying her hand at drawing and painting.
