An award-winning law student has qualified as a solicitor with leading local law firm Wace Morgan.
Jemma Gilligan, a former pupil of Llanfair Caereinion High School, joined Wace Morgan Solicitors in 2012, shortly after completing her law degree at the University of Chester.
She then went on to study the legal practice course, alongside her training contract, at the University of Law in Chester, gaining a distinction and receiving the ‘Knights Award’ for the student obtaining the highest mark in the advanced property paper. Jemma has now completed her training and has joined Wace Morgan’s commercial and civil litigation team, specialising in property issues, including boundary disputes and landlord and tenant matters; business and contract disputes and contentious probate. She will now be dividing her time between the company’s Shrewsbury and Newtown offices.
“I have gained invaluable experience with Wace Morgan in a number of specialist areas during my training here and I really look forward to starting my career as a qualified solicitor with such a prestigious firm,” Jemma commented
In her spare time she enjoys horse riding, swimming and running.
