Originally from Northampton, Joanne earned a first class degree in law from the University of East Anglia. Whilst studying, she took part in work experience placements with a local Norwich firm, and then went on to gain a distinction for her LPC from De Montfort University.
When she attended the “At Home with Roythornes” event in November 2018, Joanne won the video competition – the prize for which was to have a first interview to become a trainee. As a result, she starts her training contract with the firm in September 2019. Her first seat will be in Litigation, where she is currently working as a paralegal, learning about employment law.
