Shannon joined McAllister Olivarius after graduating from Lancaster University with First Class Honours in Law. Whilst at University, Shannon volunteered at the local Law Clinic, giving legal advice to those who could not afford representation. She also served on the Executive Board of Lancaster University’s Law Society as the Careers Officer, running seminars, lectures and trips to help fellow students achieve their career goals. Her dissertation analysed the merits and failings of the Solicitors Qualification Examinations that are due to be introduced in 2021. She has since published an article and been quoted in the Law Gazette on the subject.
At McAllister Olivarius, Shannon works on employment and sexual abuse cases, and is now completing her training contract in order to qualify as a Solicitor in 2021.
In her leisure time she enjoys cooking hearty English classics and baking everything from cupcakes to three-tier masterpieces. She also enjoys camping and hiking in the peaks, and in her home town in the Derbyshire Dales.
