Our Team \ Keir Baker (Consulting Editor)


Keir graduated from Selwyn College, Cambridge University in 2017. Having secured a distinction in his LPC at BPP Law School, he is now sitting in the Finance department of a major US law firm. His main areas of interest are Employment, Discrimination and Competition law.

Originally joining Keep Calm Talk Law as a Regular Writer in July 2015, Keir was promoted to Editor in Chief in November 2016. After around 1.5 years at the helm, he stepped back from day-to-day running of Keep Calm Talk Law on 1 August 2018, taking on the role as Consulting Editor.

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, and also wrote about studying law for The Guardian.

Outside the 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.
