On being a lawyer
When talking about being an IP lawyer, Anna says the complexity of IP and technology today, intertwined with the types of clients JAG Shaw Baker works with, is what inspires her as a lawyer.
Anna is a graduate of Durham University (Hatfield College) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and a Law degree from BPP Law School in London. Anna was admitted as a Solicitor-Advocate in England and Wales in September 2016 which gives her full rights to appear in the higher courts of England and Wales.
Anna is a volunteer for the International Justice Mission UK Charity and is proficient in French and Spanish.
