We help you excel - because research excellence matters
You don't need a college degree to practice English law.
I am The Neurodiverse Lawyer. My name is Cora Burke, and I am the founding director of Frascati Associates.
I have 20 years' experience in Corporate and Commercial practice. I have been a paralegal, contracts & compliance co-ordinator, contracts manager, commercial officer, commercial associate and contracts & intellectual property officer. My stepping stone was a job as legal secretary.
Although there are various activities under English law that do require a formal qualification ('reserved activities'), the practice of Commercial Law and Intellectual Property Law does not fall among that regime.
It means that you can get into law without going to College.
By talking to me about my mentoring programme.
I have ADHD / ASD and I get it. Regular education is frazzling and overwhelming. But I was trained as a teacher (granted, I failed at the final hurdle, but it's not been wasted), and have had ample further coaching training since. I have successfully designed, delivered and implemented a coaching programme for junior staff in a national research organisation with the purpose of supporting a non-legally qualified person to achieve their dream of becoming a junior contracts officer.
I will provide you with a safe learning environment.
Mentoring is a joint learning experience between someone who has experience of the subject or practice, and someone who wishes to master that subject or practice. There is no assumption of teacher-like authority, nor does a mentor assume that they know it all. The joy of mentoring is that both learn from each other.
The role of a mentor is to facilitate the learner in their journey. That means the study path is largely led by the learner and their wishes, and the mentor responds to the learner's expressions (whether oral or otherwise) of those wishes. If the learner indicates a preference for a difference method of learning, the mentor adapts. If the learner isn't quite sure, the mentor facilitates an exploration of learning methods.
Mentoring is all about the learner's needs, and is based in mutual respect and trust. It does not require face-to-face contact, but can if so desired.

That's great! I'd be delighted to speak with you.
Although I specialise in supporting people with alternative learning needs, I am equally capable of designing and delivering corporate training programmes.
