Lorna is doing her placement with HCLC through the Choice in Hackney voluntary organisation, which provides Advocacy and Independent Living Services to disabled people in London.
Lorna suffers from dyslexia, dyspraxia, and dicalculus but despite having to live with and manage these conditions, Lorna attended South Bank University to read for a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminology and was awarded a 2:1.
Lorna has also worked in a number of administrative and customer facing roles, as well as volunteering as a advocate whilst a student to assist fellow students negotiate with the University authorities and help them resolve their problems. Lorna has a 9 year old daughter and in her spare time she likes to cook, read and take her daughter out on excursions.
During her placement with HCLC, Lorna hopes to learn more about how civil case law can be applied to real life situations and she has so far enjoyed shadowing caseworkers at the HCLC Community Law Shop Pop-up service, which takes place in Hackney Central library every Monday.
Welcome to HCLC, Lorna!
