Having graduated from Cambridge University in 2021 with a First-Class Law degree, I moved to Madrid to undertake the ISDE Master in International Sports Law, supported by the HM Hubbard Law Scholarship. As part of this course, I undertook an internship at Bichara e Motta Advogados in Rio de Janeiro. Particular highlights included: attending the AIAF Conference in Rio, being in Buenos Aires when Argentina won the World Cup, being in Paraguay when FIFA visited Conmebol, enjoying the Rio Carnival and spending my weekends hiking through waterfalls and jungles. I’m now very much excited to join Level.
