Women in Law
International Women’s Day panel and networking event.
We are proud to invite you to attend our student-led event Women in Law, to celebrate International Women’s Day. The panel event, organised by third-year law student Megan Gough, will bring together inspirational women from the law, criminology and policing professions to discuss and celebrate their career journey to where they are today.
Lucy Moran (Future Pupil at Exchange Chambers)
Lucy is a future pupil barrister in crime at Exchange Chambers, Liverpool, with Pupillage starting in September 2024. After leaving Edge Hill with a 1:1 LLB, Lucy worked for 18 months as a paralegal in Personal Injury and received an Exhibition and Duke of Edinburgh scholarship from the Inner Temple. Lucy then went on to study at The University of Law, achieving an Outstanding in her BPC and a Distinction in her LLM. Lucy is now the Future Pupil Programme Co-Ordinator at the University of Law and aims to inspire others to have the confidence to pursue the Bar.
Paula Davidson (Front of House at Oriel Chambers)
Paula Davidson has 32 years’ experience working in both private and public sectors. In addition to her experience within the legal sector, Paula has worked for the NHS, Northwest Ambulance Service, and sat as a chair of a charitable organisation.
“The singular thread that has ran through all my experiences which proved to be integral to my success has been my ability to communicate with others. Working at Oriel Chambers requires strong communicative ability both with lay and professional clients.”
“A cliché it may be, but communication is key!”
Indunee Seneviratne (Barrister at Oriel Chambers)
Indunee studied law at the University of Manchester, this included 6 months studying abroad in North Carolina. She completed the Bar Professional Training Course at BPP Manchester before working as a paralegal at 2 solicitors’ firms in south Manchester.
In 2019, she was called to the Bar at Middle Temple and earned a place as a pupil barrister in Liverpool. Her pupillage was extended by challenges including bereavement and Covid-19, but she joined chambers as a tenant in 2021.
Now she practices criminal, civil and family law. As an immigrant to the UK and a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, Indunee feels strongly that difference can be a great asset. She is a member of Chambers’ Equality & Diversity Committee and the Middle Temple Northern Circuit Committee.
Rosie Klement (Senior Litigation Counsel at Tesco)
Rosie grew up in Kent, often being told she should be a lawyer and at the same time, law’s so competitive, it’s so hard, you’ll never get in. She completed her law degree at the University of Nottingham, and obtained a training contract at SJ Berwin in London, soon to become King & Wood Mallesons, in her second year. When KWM went into administration in her second seat as a trainee, she moved with the litigation team to Covington & Burling. In 2022, she made the jump into in-house and is now broadening her knowledge, experiences, and many of her assumptions about a legal career as Senior Litigation Counsel for Tesco PLC. Forever chasing the elusive work life balance, Rosie loves holidays, festivals, catching up with friends and spending time away from the desk as well as at it.
