Me in a minute

The combination of technical complexity and human psychology is compelling and challenging

I was introduced to the law when I was 10 years old, when I gave evidence in court about a road traffic accident in which I was hit by a car. I think something about the trial of evidence appealed to the argumentative child that I was. I returned to law after my degree in PPE, having grown into an equally argumentative adult.
