Our Team \ Samuel Cuthbert (Private Law Manager)


Sam recently completed the GDL funded by the Lord Brougham Scholarship and a Hardwicke Scholarship from Lincoln's Inn; he achieved a good commendation. Prior to that, he read for a philosophy degree at Durham University, during which he studied for a year in Paris at the Université Paris Ouest Nanterre-La Defense; he now has his sights set firmly on a career at the bar.

He has a growing interest in a number of areas of law, which he hopes to cultivate through his writing for KCTL. Sam has particularly enjoyed his experience of clinical negligence and personal injury work, finding that his philosophical study of the principles of duty and causation allowed a greater insight into the common law's approach to them. He is also certain that comments such as these go a long way to explaining why nobody is ever free to go to the pub with him.

Taking immense enjoyment from mooting and debating, Sam relishes any opportunity for public speech, his attraction to advocacy being a motivating factor in his pursuit of a successful career as a barrister.

Sam is now spending a year, prior to undertaking the BPTC, to develop his legal interests in a paralegal capacity. His legal career is starting in a M&A paralegal role at a large Viennese firm. His understanding of German is poor at best.

Away from the law, Sam enjoys cooking, eating and (much to the lament of his teammates) rugby.

Sam is enthusiastic and excited about his role writing for KCTL and is hugely grateful to any who read that which he writes.
