Alice Thornton



Alice read Law at the London School of Economics and then undertook an LLM at the University of Cambridge. She subsequently completed the BPTC, for which she was awarded Student of the Year for her results.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Alice worked as a paralegal assisting with matrimonial finance and private child matters. She was also a Judicial Assistant to Mr Justice MacDonald at the High Court (Family Division), where she gained experience in a wide range of family matters, particularly international private child cases. This built on Alice’s time as a legal caseworker at the AIRE Centre, an NGO specialising in European and human rights law. While there, she assisted with and drafted third party interventions in cases before domestic and international courts.

Alice also volunteered at the Personal Support Unit (now Support Through Court) and taught advocacy and debating to secondary school and sixth form students through Griffin LAW.
