Name: Leanne Hall

quote: [The support I received from the university was brilliant.]

Course: Certificate in Trade Mark Practice
Year: 2012
Job title: Trade Mark Attorney
Employer: Serjeants LLP

Current role?
Brand protection for varying sized companies. This includes both contentious and non contentious work. Filing trade marks, preventing misuse of marks, anti counterfeiting, copyright protection.

Typical day?
Each day varies depending on my current cases, which is why I enjoy my job so much. Generally I will respond to some new enquiries, advise and file a new mark for a client, liaise with attorneys for the other side to come to an agreement for my client on a contentious matter.

Career developments?
The course I took at Nottingham Trent was the final stage of my qualification to become a trade mark attorney. Since then I have worked in house and then gone back into private practice.

Challenges?
Due to illness I had to defer one of my exams and instead take it during the resit period in August. It didn't impact on me qualifying and just made me even more determined to succeed.

Your NTU experience?
The things that I learnt on the course have definitely helped how I advise clients. It also helped to be surrounded by other trade mark attorneys as we could swap ideas and experiences.

Advice for others?
Determination is the key. Never give up, because if you work hard enough you can achieve, you may not start your career where you want to but often that's a blessing in disguise.

How friendly and supportive an environment did you find Nottingham Trent?
The support I received from the university was brilliant. The staff were very approachable and willing to help.

Career highlights?
It's always nice to see a client's mark that you have registered being used either on the product or on advertising etc, especially if it's been a difficult mark to get through and has taken a lot of work.

Where have you taken your advice and inspiration from?
Family, friends and fellow trade mark attorneys.

My role involves providing counselling and special education classes to junior and senior school students.
With children of 5-11 years, my work includes remedial classes, behaviour modification and group sessions, whereas with 12-17 year old students I take classroom sessions on issues related to day to day lives. I also give them one on one counselling sessions and organize sessions for parents.

For students from the senior school I conduct one on one counselling sessions.

Career developments?
After graduating from NTU, I started as a research assistant at University of Delhi where the focus of the project was on gifted education in India. I was involved in the project for 6 months where my responsibilities ranged from conducting psychological assessments, to drafting the handbook on giftedness.
After this, I got the opportunity to work as a counsellor and special educator at Mater Dei School, New Delhi.
I also provided my service on an online counselling portal for (YourDost), for 6 months.

Challenges?
When I started the research assistant job, it was my role to implement the use of psychological tests in the project. Initially, I found this to be a challenge as I was pretty much starting from scratch without any prior setup. However, with the knowledge I acquired from my academics I achieved my objectives quicker than I had first imagined.

Your NTU experience?
My experience at Nottingham Trent has given me an added advantage in a number of aspects. It has especially helped me develop my perseverance in difficult situations. My time at Trent also opened me up to different ideals, which I probably wouldn't have been exposed to otherwise.

Advice for others?
Be strong when making decisions and always follow your heart. If you ever feel stuck, pen down your thoughts in the form of a pros and cons list. It always helps me!

How friendly and supportive an environment did you find Nottingham Trent?
I found Nottingham Trent to be very supportive and friendly from my first day - our international office really helped us settle in and made us feel at home.

Career highlights?
One of my personal goals was to support individuals (especially adolescents) with their daily struggles. I feel I have achieved this to an extent as I'm a student counsellor for a reputed institution.

Plans for the future?
I'm currently focusing on gaining more experience as a counsellor and special educator but I would like to do a PhD in the near future.
