Rob graduated from Newcastle University in 2016 after studying Law and continued to study the LPC at Northumbria University, where he achieved a distinction. Despite originally being from Oxford, Rob has always dreamed of moving to the North East, due to strong family ties with the region. This led to him undertaking Legal Work experience and applying for Training Contracts in Newcastle during his studies. Rob was keen to build a career at a firm with a strong presence in the region and was able to experience this during the Hay & Kilner vacation scheme.
Prior to commencing his training contract, Rob was able to work in the Residential Property Department as a paralegal. He is now in the third seat of his training contract in the Family Department having previously enjoyed seats in the Commercial Team, assisting the Property and Disputes Units, and the Clinical Negligence Team.
Outside of work Rob is a long suffering Newcastle United fan who can often be found in St James’ Park on a Saturday afternoon. He also enjoys travelling and experiencing new places and cultures.
