Huddersfield legal professional qualifies as a solicitor

Rachel Hunt - Wilkinson Woodward Norcliffe Co

A young lawyer from Huddersfield is celebrating after qualifying as a solicitor.

Rachel Hunt began her legal career with Wilkinson Woodward in 2014 on a part time work experience placement, whilst still studying at the University of Huddersfield.

After achieving a first-class honours degree in Law and completing her Master of Law and Practice Course, she began working as a legal assistant at their Brighouse office where she supported the Wills and Probate team. Rachel then moved to the firm’s Halifax office where she worked on a wide range of Personal Injury matters.

In April 2018 Wilkinson Woodward offered Ms Hunt a training contract and, over the past 18 months, she has gained valuable experience in all departments. As a qualified Solicitor, Rachel will now join the firm’s residential and commercial property department. She will be based at Wilkinson Woodward Norcliffe and Co’s offices in Queen Street, Huddersfield.
