During her pupillage, she was supervised by Graeme LoganWill Noble, Ben Joyes and Richard Paton Philip and assisted in the preparation of both prosecution and defence matters involving firearms, sexual offences, fraud, and serious violence.

Whilst studying for her master’s in law, Sophie worked on a pro-bono project which provided legal advice for victims of domestic violence during covid. Her MA legal research project focused on the effectiveness of the disclosure process in RASSO cases.

Prior to starting pupillage, Sophie worked as the Future Pupil Programme Coordinator at The University of Law. Here she advised students on their careers and spoke with barristers and other legal organisations daily.
