Name: Emily Clayton

Location: Chesterfield

Qualifications/Degrees/Professional Status: Bachelor’s in Psychology (First Class Honours) & Master’s in Cyberpsychology (Commendation)

Costs Drafting History: Emily began training with Bidwell Henderson in March 2021, on our bespoke Law Costs Draftsperson Training Programme.

Claim to fame/Something we wouldn’t know about you: Emily once had an accident in Spain where another child ran into her and caused her nose to bleed. Two women helped her in the bathroom until her parents found her, and these two women turned out to be the Cheeky Girls.

Profile: In her spare time she enjoys playing video games and spending time with her family, friends and especially her dog, Buddy. She’s a very family-oriented person so most of her recreational passions include shopping with her mum or completing DIY projects with her dad.

Emily’s previous experience is in social sciences, namely psychology, and this has allowed her to explore her interest in video games in further depth and focus on some of her main passions, such as how gaming impacts human behaviour and whether it is linked to increased criminality.

Favourite film: Emily’s favourite genres for any type of media are the classic blockbusters including Star Wars, Marvel, DC Comics and Lord of The Rings.
