Hello I’m Leanne!


I graduated from Northumbria University in 2019 and shortly after, started my role as a Paralegal at Ramsdens Solicitors. I am now a Trainee Solicitor at Ramsdens having started my Training Contract in September 2021.


I regularly attend Leeds JLD events and am delighted to be part of the committee. I am looking forward to getting started in my role as Events Officer and planning engaging, educational events for like-minded junior legal professionals in Leeds and the surrounding Yorkshire regions.


If there are particular events that you think may be beneficial, please get in touch.

Ellie Folger


My name is Ellie and I am your National Representative. I graduated from Newcastle University in 2018 with a degree in English Literature. I then went on to study the GDL and LPC whilst working at Ramsdens, where I am currently a trainee solicitor.

In my spare time, I enjoy running, cycling and playing netball. I play netball in the JLD league and attend as many JLD events as I possibly can!

As National Representative, my role will involve attending meetings hosted by the Law Society with the other junior lawyer divisions across the country. These meetings discuss the current affairs and issues impacting the legal industry, and my role is to feed this back to Leeds JLD.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
