Alice Helm

Trainee Solicitor, Public Law and Human Rights


Alice is part of the Public Law and Human Rights team within the Public Law Department and currently assists Victoria Pogge Von Strandmann.

Alice is now completing her training contract and is due to qualify as a solicitor in April 2024.

Alice graduated from Durham University with First Class Degree in History and Classics, and then gained a graduate Diploma in Law from University of Law with Distinction.

Whilst at University, Alice helped to found the Durham Winter Night Shelter- the first emergency homelessness provision in the City. She also volunteered for the Citizen’s Advice Bureau in Durham and Sunderland.

In 2019-20, Alice was the chair of the RebLaw Conference, which involved leading an executive team to organise a 2-day conference aimed at young activists and lawyers involved in the social change movement.

Alice has recently been appointed the Foundation Governor of a local primary school.

Alice is keen to use her experience of working with many vulnerable individuals in a charitable capacity to engage with clients in a caring, compassionate and accessible manner.

Interests outside of work

Alice finds any excuse to get outdoors. She has a particular love of animals and is currently learning how to care for ducks, geese, chickens, alpacas and pigs as part of a small holding.
