Before pursuing a career in law, achieved a First Class Honours in LLB and a Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL) from St Hilda’s College, University of Oxford.
James is a recipient of the Astbury Scholarship from Middle Temple. This scholarship is awarded to those Oxford and Cambridge graduates who show the most promise as a barrister.

James worked as a paralegal for 3 years before commencing his training contract, enabling him to obtain a good grounding in civil litigation, particularly in employment law and personal-injury litigation.
