Areas of Practice
Ursula joined Appleman Legal in March 2022 as a Mental Health Paralegal. Ursula has a strong interest in mental health law as she is keen to bring together her natural compassion for clients with being goal-oriented and professional, especially in cases aligned with all areas of mental health law in which sensitivity towards other’s needs is a pre-requisite.
Ursula’s degree in English Literature and History from the University of Exeter precedes her in showing her adept ability and strong command of spoken and written English. She has applied the fluency of this communication to several roles throughout her university life including sitting on the Board for Race Equality for her university.
Moreover, her time working as a Junior Legal Administrator for the Accra Gender Centre in both a physical and remote capacity. Her experience with case administration allowed her to be with litigants, often victims of abuse, throughout the duration of their cases.
Most notably, her recent pro-bono work with The BPP Law Clinic, whilst currently studying for her Postgraduate Diploma in Law, is where her leadership skills really shone through.
Ursula has had the opportunity to run sessions with women’s rights groups and ex-offenders and continually advocates for these parties to have a better understanding and up-to-date knowledge of the law in these areas.
Ursula's interests include travelling, art and reading.
