Profile

Prior to commencing pupillage, Kitty worked at Bindmans as a family law paralegal, predominantly assisting with public law children, private law children and international child abduction cases. Through this role, she was able to develop her advocacy skills by attending both PLO meetings and advocates meetings on behalf of fee-earners. She also had the opportunity to attend several hearings in both the High Court and Court of Appeal with counsel, whilst at Bindmans.

Before working as a paralegal, Kitty studied at both King’s College, London and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, as a Dickson Poon Scholar of Law. Alongside her studies, Kitty participated in several mooting competitions whilst at King’s and was an Advocacy Scholar and member of the Advocacy Committee at the University of Law. She also volunteered within the legal departments of several charities including the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, Marie Curie and Advocate (formerly the Bar Pro Bono Unit), providing assistance to caseworkers on active case matters in several areas of law including immigration, contract, and employment law.

In her spare time, Kitty enjoys running, yoga and playing the flute.
