Jennifer graduated with an honours degree in law in 2003. After completing her Diploma in Legal Practice, she completed her traineeship in 2007 with Scotland’s leading law centre, Legal Services Agency, gaining experience in the fields of asylum, housing and social welfare law.
In 2009, Jennifer joined the well-respected Immigration Advisory Service, where she expanded her knowledge by advising clients in all aspects of asylum, immigration and nationality law. Jennifer continued to develop her expertise in this area in 2011 when she joined the specialist immigration firm, Loughran & Co.
Since October 2011, Jennifer has been Training Co-Ordinator for the Scottish Immigration Law Practitioners Association (SILPA). In that capacity she has organised training and seminars on various aspects of asylum and immigration law and keeps colleagues abreast of developments in this rapidly changing area with regular e-mail updates.
In September 2014, Jennifer became only the fourth solicitor in Scotland to obtain an Accredited Specialism in Immigration from the Law Society of Scotland and is an Associate Solicitor within Latta & Co.
Jennifer also acts as a Volunteer Medico-Legal Report Reviewer for Freedom From Torture (formerly known as the Medical Foundation for Victims of Torture) and in March 2015 became a member of the Law Society of Scotland’s Immigration and asylum Sub-committee. She has also provided expert opinion for non-immigration solicitors.
In her spare time Jennifer enjoys reading, watching films, playing guitar and spending time with her family and friends.
