Not All Lawyers Have Law Degrees


Pauline Campbell: Be strong in your resolve

Season 2, Ep. 5

Pauline Campbell is our final career changer in our mini series – she qualified as a lawyer at the age of 41 after a successful career as a housing benefits officer. She went on to work at Hackney Borough Council and now she’s a senior lawyer for the prosecution team at London Borough of Waltham Forest. She talks about how the Steven Lawrence case spurred her on to finally taking the leap into law and how she made it by building on the skills she’d gained along the way. Pauline has written a book about race, identity and belonging titled ‘Rice and Peas and Fish and Chips’.
