About Me

Hi, I’m Harry – a lawyer, University of York graduate and creator of this (imaginatively named) site, HarryClarkLaw!

I founded this site in September 2019 as a small passion project to try after finishing my undergraduate studies. In the space of 12 months, that project has grown to encompass a lot more than blogs and articles, encompassing podcasting, events, freelance work and marketing.

Why?

Access to insights about industries and career advice can be a postcode lottery based on where you study and live. After graduating from the University of York in 2019, I began to speak to more students informally about my experiences studying the LLB and applying for graduate positions at law firms through social media.

It was only once I started to have these conversations that I realised how disparate experiences can be between two people aiming to learn more about the same concept. Resources and experiences I’d been able to use during university – law fairs, careers services and speaking to lawyers directly – aren’t equally reflected across the board.

In addition, I’d made my fair share of (ultimately necessary) mistakes and corrected many misconceptions throughout my own experiences. Through my own networking efforts, I also began to learn about what those currently practicing in the industry would do differently, or their key pieces of actionable advice based on their expertise.

So, I launched this blog – and later, my podcast – to help discover and disseminate this information to others.
