Host Organisation: Vauxhall Community Law & Information Centre

Alex Feery

I am a Trainee Solicitor with Vauxhall Community Information and Law Centre.

I graduated with a degree in history from the University of Warwick. I then went on to complete the GDL and LPC with LLM at Manchester Metropolitan University. The subject of my dissertation was on the Mental Capacity Act, testamentary capacity and the impact of the social model of disability and UN Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities.

I volunteered throughout my legal education. This included a placement at Greater Manchester Law Centre via the Legal Advocacy Support Project. The project entailled supporting clients at welfare benefit tribunals. I also provided support as a campaigns’ volunteer at the law centre. Additionally, I was also a volunteer at Citizens Advice Salford providing triage and discrete advice face to face. I also worked as a paralegal part time during my LPC.

After my LPC I went on to a paid role at Citizens Advice Salford as an adviser, providing holistic advice on such issues as welfare benefits and housing. This was both face to face, digitally and over the phone.
