About Louise

I completed my LLB degree at the University of Edinburgh, graduating in 2015.  I then worked at the Scottish Law Commission for one year as a Legal Research Assistant in the property team.  

Following which I moved to South Korea for one year, where I worked as an English teacher.  I was lucky enough to be able to do some travelling around Asia whilst I was there too.

Returning to Scotland in Summer 2017, I spent some time in South America before completing my Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at the University of Glasgow.

I started my traineeship at Balfour+Manson in August 2018.

Specialist area

I am currently undertaking my first seat in Employment Law where I assist Robert Holland (Partner and Head of Department) and my colleagues with a variety of employment actions.  

To date I have assisted in the preparation for a full tribunal hearing, a reconsideration hearing and a judicial mediation to name a few.  

Additionally, I have been involved in presenting to Chinese delegates on employment law matters including national minimum wage and discrimination law.  I have also given employment advice in a law clinic and drafted various employment tribunal documents.  

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the employment law department thus far as it is a fascinating area of law which affects everyone in their day-to-day lives.
