GCN welcomes Alexander McColl
5 October 2022
Garden Court North Chambers is delighted to welcome Alexander McColl, who started his pupillage with us this week.
Prior to pupillage, Alexander worked as an Adviser at Citizens Advice for a number of years, where he provided specialist advice and casework on debt, benefits and housing issues. He has also worked at a Students’ Union Advice Centre, where he advised students on housing and discrimination issues and represented students at disciplinary panels.
Alexander has a deep interest in welfare benefits, social housing and human rights. He was formerly a volunteer benefits adviser with the Greater Manchester Law Centre, a volunteer on the Sheffield Innocence Project (part of what was the Innocence Network UK), and an elected member of the Policy Council at Liberty. While at BPP Manchester, he also volunteered on the BPP Legal Advice Clinic.
