    Linden attended the College’s Birmingham centre from 2006 to 2008 where she studied the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course. She then worked at the centre as marketing coordinator for a year before joining Martineau as a trainee solicitor.

    The Trainee Solicitor of the Year Award is sponsored by The College of Law and Janet Wright, who presented the award on behalf of the College, was thrilled that the winner was a Birmingham centre alumnus.

    She said: “We are proud that so many of the nominees were ex College of Law students and especially proud of what Linden has accomplished since becoming a trainee.”
