Our Team \ Keir Baker (Editor in Chief)


Keir graduated from Selwyn College, Cambridge University in 2017. He is a Future Trainee Solicitor at Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP, with whom he will begin his Training Contract in August 2018. His main areas of interest are Employment and Discrimination law.

Originally joining Keep Calm Talk Law as a Regular Writer in July 2015, Keir was promoted to Editor in Chief in November 2016.

Keir’s interest in the law stems from his love of debating. Following his participation in the Debating Matters 2012/2013 UK-wide competition – in which he finished 2nd – he developed a passion for creating, analysing and deconstructing arguments which transitioned into a love of the conflicting theories underlying the differing opinions surrounding many legal disputes.

During his degree, Keir held the positions of both the Interviews and Sports Editor for Cambridge University's oldest student newspaper Varsity. Keir has also written about studying law for The Guardian and has also had a peer-reviewed academic article comparing English and German constitutional law published by The Anglo-German Law Journal.

Outside the realm of law, Keir is an accomplished goalkeeper in both football and hockey, as well as a keen actor and pianist. He is a long-suffering supporter of Middlesbrough FC.
