Harrison graduated with a Law degree from the University of Surrey in 2020.
He will undertake his LPC and MSc in Law, Business and Management at the University of Law in Guildford, commencing in September
After achieving the equivalent of three A* grades at a-level, Harrison began his undergraduate studies after being awarded a scholarship by the University of Surrey.
Harrison studied the disciplines of Criminology and Sociology in his first year, before going on to complete a work experience placement with regional law firm Biscoes in 2017. He sat in Criminal Law, which involved him attending several court hearings and taking witness statements from clients. This ignited his interest in the legal profession, converting to study Law the following year.
In 2018, Harrison worked as a course representative and regularly provided small workshops sessions which were designed to help support students in their lower years.
In 2019, Harrison was successful in his application to Horsham based firm, Lewis Denely. He sat in both Real Estate and Commercial Law, ultimately confirming his interest in pursuing the commercial route.
Throughout his time at university, Harrison was actively involved as a member of the Surrey Law Society. He has attended numerous networking events and regularly participated in society meetings and university talks, including Toulson’s Law Lecture, entitled ‘Testing the Rule of Law in the Modern World’ which was delivered by Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE.
In addition to his academics, Harrison launched his legal blog and website in February 2020. Within this, he documents his journey by sharing his experiences with other law students. After gaining much traction and amassing over 3,000 followers in three months, Harrison expanded his platform and launched the ‘Harry’s Law’ initiative.
This included the introduction of two further platforms which set out the objective of making a career in law more accessible to everybody by sharing the journeys of aspiring lawyers and practising legal professionals, hoping to inspire others along the way.
Alongside this, Harrison set up a student support platform which takes a more targeted approach at supporting students. Harrison had been running each of his channels whilst studying for his final year undergraduate exams, reflecting his true passion for helping the wider legal community and demonstrating entrepreneurial spirit throughout.
His hard work and dedication were recently recognised by the Corporate Law Academy where he was 1 out of 5 people chosen to be part of TCLA’s Accelerator Programme which had over 100 applicants.
In May 2020, Harrison became the first Kissoon Carr Ambassador after he was approached by Founder and Managing Director, Robert Hanna. His active social media presence and engagement with the Kissoon Carr team lead to him joining the firm where he was soon promoted to Head Ambassador a month after.
