For the 2017/18 Session the Law Clinic will have Joint Student Directors in Cheryl Liddell and Ross Wilson, both former managers and experienced advisors. As Directors they will be responsible for: the day-to-day administration of the clinic and all operations; setting our policies; recruiting and training new members; representing us at external events; and planning for expansion and resilience. So far this year they have created and overseen the implementation of a variety of projects, such as our mentoring initiative and careers service. They hope to complete an ambitious growth plan this year, and are supported by the Management Team in all that endeavour and in everything else.
Prior to her appointment as a Joint Director, Cheryl was our Media Manager for 2016/17. She joined the clinic in 2014 during her first year and since then has advised on many cases. She has a keen interest in Employment, Human Rights, Public and Commercial Law and hopes to pursue these interests throughout her career.
