Albert joined chambers as a pupil in October 2021.
Prior to coming to the Bar, Albert read Politics with Quantitative Research Methods at the University of Bristol before converting to law. Albert received major scholarships for both the GDL and the BTC from Middle Temple.
Albert has undertaken pro bono work alongside his studies, volunteering at the Employment and Consumer Law pop-up clinic in central London. Before undertaking pupillage, Albert also worked as a Parliamentary Research and Communications Intern in the House of Lords.
Throughout his first six months of pupillage, Albert is being exposed to the breadth of chambers’ family and civil practice under the supervision of Elizabeth Spence and Kate Kochnari. He is developing his practise into public and private children work, proceedings for financial remedies, and Family Law Act 1996 matters. Albert is also witnessing an array of work across chambers’ property, employment, and personal injury teams.
Albert is looking forward to being able to accept instructions from April 2022.
