All lawyers go to public school, then Oxbridge and get a leg up from daddy who is a High Court Judge. Right?

Well, no. In January Dr Matthew Channon from Exeter university started a hashtag on twitter #mypathtolaw . He wanted to show that many lawyers have overcome a range of barriers to pursue a career in the profession. Withing days dozens of lawyers began to share their stories.

At Lawyers Life we thought it would be great to record some of these stories. We start with Neil Clark whose story is worthy of a film script – indeed we’re pursuing that idea with him!
