Brianna FribergTrainee Solicitor

Job Role at EMG

I am a Trainee Solicitor at the firm and joined in September 2021. I am currently in the Family department, which is my first training seat. My role includes assisting clients with their family law queries and working within the family team to develop my knowledge and experience of family law.

Experience

I have recently completed a four-year integrated Masters degree in Law, graduating with a first class honours. During my time at university, I developed my legal experience by working within a range of local law firms – from smaller high-street firms to larger commercial firms, across a variety of departments. I have also been awarded prizes for my academic performance, including The Faculty Pro Vice-Chancellor Award.

Whilst at university, I worked within the Student Law Office, where I had my own clients and ran my own files whilst under the supervision of a practicing barrister. Working here provided me with first-hand experience of dealing with clients in a legal environment.

Outside of EMG, I spend most of my time with friends and family and love to travel whenever I get the opportunity. Most often, I am out and about walking with the dogs!
