After achieving a first class degree in criminal justice and law at Liverpool John Moores University, winning an academic excellence award, she completed the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the University of Law in Manchester.
Carley will support and advise clients on a variety of issues relating to employment law, utilising her experience in drafting settlement agreements, disciplinary and dismissal issues and work place policies.
