I’m Adam Fellows and this is my legal blog. I aim to write about developments in my areas of interest, namely media and public law. However, I will also dip my toes into others areas of law as matters arise and will also post some personal comments on both law and becoming a lawyer.
I completed the Bar Vocational Course in July 2011 (Very Competent, part time over two years), and I am currently working as a legal researcher, editor and media developer for a small publishing company while looking to move into a line of work more involved in the media, expression and information. I can be found on Twitter using the handle @FellowsAdam, where I can be found livetweeting lectures and debates. I endeavour to write these up and post them here as well. I hope you find the matters I write about interesting and informative. I also enjoy medieval and early modern history, and may blog about that occasionally.
I initially studied at the University of St Andrews, and was awarded an Upper Second MA (Hons) degree in Modern History and International Relations. After that I took some time to earn some money, before reading for the GDL and the BVC at BPP Law School in London. To assist me in my studies, I was awarded exhibitions for both by the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple. I also worked for the Ministry of Justice while studying for my BVC part time. I worked in the Constitution and Judiciary Division, working on projects related to the judiciary such as diversity, appointment, pay and conditions, and judicial engagement.
I tweet in a more personal capacity elsewhere. If you want to follow that account, get in touch.
If we ever meet in a pub, I am partial to an Islay single malt.
