She graduated from the University of Strathclyde with an LL.B (Hons) in 2012 and went on to complete her Diploma in Professional Legal Practice a year later at Strathclyde, finishing in June 2013.

Laura was elected as the Vice President and executive committee member of the Scottish Young Lawyers Association for 2015/2016.
In Laura’s own words:
“I was drawn to the Law by the prospect of helping people – being able to work closely with people to solve their problems is an attractive and challenging career path. Becoming a lawyer was not on the radar at school but I latterly realised that it gave me the opportunity to continually develop throughout the whole of my career. No two days are the same and I find that exciting!
“I am now heavily involved in the Scottish Young Lawyers’ Association and a major motivation for this is to increase access to justice in Scotland, and also to encourage individuals from all backgrounds to get involved in law.”
