The directors of Advocates Smith Taubitz Unsworth Ltd congratulated Debbie Myerscough on passing the Manx Bar exams on her first attempt and well within her first year of training. Debbie started her legal career as a legal executive and worked her way through the ILEX qualifications before going on to undertake a Law Degree and Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice.
Debbie qualified as an English solicitor earlier this year and passing her Manx Bar exams is the end to 15 years of studying to achieve her goal. Debbie’s success is testament to her hard work and dedication to study while holding down a full time job as well as undertaking her role as a wife and mother.
Debbie said: ‘I would like to say thank you to my family for all their years of patience and support. I would also like to thank the firm for the significant efforts made to support me through what are the most challenging set of exams I have ever had to sit’.
Debbie will finally qualify as a Manx advocate upon expiry of her training contract in February 2015.
