Callum graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in History. He completed his GDL at BPP Law School and is now undertaking the LPC part-time.
Callum decided to make the transition into a legal career after completing an in-house placement at the defence contractor, General Dynamics UK. During his time at BPP University, Callum undertook pro-bono work for the homelessness and housing charity Shelter UK, where he assisted clients on matters concerning poor housing conditions and disputes with landlords.
Since joining PGMBM Law in January 2019, Callum has spent a month in Brazil working on a £5bn lawsuit against the mining company, BHP. The trip involved travelling to affected areas throughout the country, meeting with victims of the 2015 Fundão dam disaster and learning about how their lives have been affected by the dam’s collapse.
The highlight of the trip was being offered a unique opportunity to spend two days with the Pataxó, an indigenous tribe. The trip helped him learn more about indigenous culture, their persecution and how the dam collapse affected their livelihoods.
