Amy started working at Mourant at the beginning of the second year of her LLB. Her first role was as a Legal Assistant/Paralegal while still working towards completing her LLB. After finishing the LLB, Mourant arranged for her to be enrolled on the Jersey Law Course with the Institute of Law. Upon completion of the Jersey Law Course two years later she was sworn in as a Jersey Solicitor in the Royal Court.
