I studied LLB (Hons) as I had always had an interest in law but as a youngster from a poor family in 1960 we could not afford for me to go to uni or even take a job in a solicitor’s office. So it was off to the factory to earn a wage to help the family finances and thank you Unilever for paying my way to study for a Management Diploma whilst working for Birds Eye and providing me with a successful career in management.
Nearing my retirement, The Open University began offering the LLB honours course and I took advantage.
Now at 64, I am a successful Employment Law Advice Specialist working for the Citizens Advice Bureau, getting paid for doing the work I love after a period as an unpaid volunteer General Adviser.
The Open University certainly opened up new vistas for me and gave me the chance I would never have had without it to study and practise law.
