Hi Neal - I've just sent a response to Olha on this which you can see in the discussion. If you've got any follow-up questions, please let me know.

Hi Ajay - thank you very much I've just seen your response, it was very helpful! I am also a joint honours philosophy student so out of interest, do you feel that you have used your degree in your career as a lawyer?

I can't say that I have often referred to my training in metaphysics when discussing legal issues with my clients!

However, I very often try to tackle complicated problems by going back to first principles and then tracking it through. This way of approaching issues helps me be clear about what the relevant rules are, we want to achieve and then the best way of doing that.

I'm sure your clients are also appreciative of that! That's great to hear I'll definitely keep that in mind, thank you for your response.
