Richard Stubbs - Barrister, Self Employed, Trinity Chambers (Law with French (BA Hons), 2004)

Newcastle's a great place that I now call home. The people are warm and welcoming and there is a great buzz about the place. It has very good restaurants and bars and has a beautiful coastline very nearby. The sports offering in and around the city is also second to none. I knew that ideally I wanted to stay in Newcastle and I was fortunate to obtain pupillage at Trinity Chambers (Newcastle and Middlesbrough) while I was still at university. I did what was then called my Bar Vocational Course and returned to Newcastle. I have been at Trinity ever since. I thoroughly enjoy my job and my most important career goal was to enjoy what I do at work. My degree prepared me well for my career that has followed. I enjoyed playing rugby for the lawyers team at Newcastle University and maintain an interest in rugby, although now through following the Falcons. Perhaps most importantly I met my wife at university.
