FOUNDERS & PRESIDENTS
CO-FOUNDER & PRESIDENT
Hi I'm Melissa, but most people call me Mel! I co-founded Diverse Lawyers to celebrate more inclusivity and raise conversation about mental health with students aspiring to law careers or studying law degrees. In my spare time, I run for King's athletics team and am an ambassador for Beat.
CO-FOUNDER & PRESIDENT
Hi, I'm Joe. Known as Joey by everyone except my mother and my passport. I'm an editor of opinion for a student blog and a pretentious Londoner wannabe. I helped to co-found Diverse Lawyers in order to continue to promote the diversity that makes the legal sector so great.
OUR DEDICATED REPRESENTATIVES
My name is Ivan and I'm a second year law student. I originally come from Bulgaria but I'm a bit of a citizen of the world, which is why I feel so passionately about diverse representation. I've been communicating for 18 years now and I will be utilising this experience to ensure that everyone at King's is made aware of opportunities that will enable them to pursue the legal career they want.
GENDER DIVERSITY REPRESENTATIVE
Hi, I'm Yewande and I'm the Gender Diversity Representative. I'm excited to be part of this committee because I believe that diversity and representation is a really important cause. I am looking forward to learning and using my voice in this way.
I'm a high achiever, an eloquent public speaker, a talented singer and dancer with a deep interest in human psychology, history and English Literature and pursuing a career in law. I have worked for years with a racial harmony volunteer group and am excited to be part of the Diverse Lawyers Society, representing the BAME community!
I am a first year law student, and one of the Wellness Representatives of the KCL Diverse Lawyers. I hope to use my experience struggling with mental health to bring awareness and make the law school experience easier and happier for all of us. I love baking and cooking while having my daily dose of trashy TV. I hope to one day retire to Hawaii and run a bespoke cake business with my cat.
Hello, I'm Luke and I shall be the Law Careers Representative for the coming year. I look forward to meeting all of you and discussing the plethora of opportunities that we can open up for our futures, in a relaxed and social environment - law doesn't have to be stressful all the time!
Nadia Mensah Yeboah
Hi I'm Nadia and I am a bubbly second year Law Student who aspires to be a solicitor. I love music, learning about new cultures and languages. As a BAME Representative I hope to contribute in developing a more inclusive and culturally aware environment with students who are interested in the legal field.
Su Wen Lee
Hello! I'm Su, a first year law student. I am very excited to have the opportunity work with similar minded people on the committee to promote diversity and support inclusion within the competitive realm of law. As Wellbeing representative, I am also very honoured to have the chance to act as a support system for those needing help with anything, I'm always open for a chat.
I'm excited to bring some new ideas to foster a sense of community and a steady support network for students. Here's to a successful inagural year for Diverse Lawyers society!
Hi guys! My name is Ryan, a PPL student and aspiring solicitor. I was born in Singapore, but I attended High School in Hong Kong. I enjoy playing sports, eating all kinds of food and socialising. I look forward to serving as your Careers Representative in the coming year!
Hello! I'm Swaathi, a first year law student who enjoys meaningful conversations and board games. Coming from a small town in Malaysia, I have always realised the need to make opportunities more accessible for minorities and the less privileged to help create an equal playing field. As Treasurer, I hope to be part of this change by increasing inclusivity in the legal field.
