Graduate Adam wins major scholarship to train as a Barrister

Congratulations to Bangor Law School graduate Adam Gulliver, who has been awarded a £9,500 scholarship to train as a Barrister.

Adam, who graduated with a First Class degree in Law last summer, was awarded the Middle Temple’s prestigious Harmsworth Scholarship to study the Bar Professional Training Course at BPP University, Manchester, in September.

“Even though I am no longer a student at Bangor Law School, I have still been able to rely on the lecturers for support over the last few months”, says Adam, who currently works as a Paralegal for Hugh James Solicitors and represents the firm in North Wales. “Both Dr Yvonne McDermott Rees and Stephen Clear were kind enough to serve as referees for my Middle Temple scholarship application, and Aled Griffiths and Gwilym Owen generously gave me a mock interview in preparation of the real thing. I am extremely thankful for all of their support, which was vital in helping me get this scholarship.

“I am already looking into finding a pupillage to commence in September 2016. My overall aim is to build up a practice in family law, both public and private.”

Bangor Law School wishes Adam the best of luck with his BPTC and subsequent career.
