Charlotte Walker

Paralegal 

Charlotte joined MSB in 2021 and is a Paralegal in the Family Department, having graduated in 2020 with an upper 2:1 LLB at Manchester Metropolitan University. 

During her time at University, Charlotte was awarded an Academic Excellence Scholarship in her first year. Charlotte also volunteered as a Researcher for a project with ‘Justice for Women’. This project was sent to Parliament to aid in the review of the sentencing guidelines in relation to women who kill their abusive partners.  The research from this project was also used in a Court of Appeal case, well-known in the media. 

In her second year, Charlotte was awarded an Academic Bursary Scholarship. This Scholarship enabled Charlotte to study a prestigious Health and Human Rights course at the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands. 

Charlotte has also worked as a Support Worker for people with learning difficulties and as an Advocacy Assistant at a global non-profit organisation and a human trafficking and modern slavery charity. The Advocacy Assistant position was voluntary-based and was done alongside studying her degree and part-time work.  

She is passionate about advocacy and believes that it is essential to understand a client’s personal background to truly deliver the best client care possible, and to achieve the client’s desirable outcome.  

Charlotte intends to study the Legal Practice Course in 2022 whilst working at MSB full-time. Outside of work, Charlotte is a keen Equestrian and enjoys competing with her horse.
