John's Mission:

There is a global paradigm shift taking place that is creating a new economy which in turn is reinventing professional services. The practice of law and conventional legal services are being integrated into a dynamic professional services market that is multidisciplinary and technology driven.

I’m making a commitment to this new generation of LLB/JD students and lawyers who are aware through underemployment in this booming market that the JD is just a degree to provide them with guidance and counselling on how to obtain the requisite graduate credentials to become specialists in niche practice areas. 

I’m making a commitment to B.A., B.Sc. and business degree undergraduates frustrated with underemployment in the new economy with guidance and counselling on how to access direct entry innovative UK graduate LLM and MA law degree programs and obtain the expertise and career credential to open doors in this booming professional services market.
