Alana began pupillage at Harcourt Chambers in October 2020, with her first pupil supervisor, Alicia Collinson.
Before starting pupillage, Alana worked as a paralegal at a London firm where she managed a busy case load and dealt with vulnerable clients in care matters. She then worked for a charity as a support worker for victims of human trafficking and modern slavery. This work involved assisting vulnerable, isolated and marginalised asylum seekers and refugees to access language classes, financial assistance and legal advice, including immigration advice.
During her time at University, Alana was President of the student law society and was a national mooting champion. During her BPTC, she volunteered as a call handler for a charity that assists families in crisis.
Alana is an advocate for increased access to the Bar and hosts a podcast in association with her Inn that encourages people from non-traditional backgrounds to explore the Bar as a potential career. In her spare time, she is a keen violinist and a member of a local orchestra.
