In this episode of Lessons I Learned in Law Scott Brown speaks to Elizabeth Rimmer. Elizabeth has been managing and developing charities in the mental health sector for over 20 years. She joined LawCare in 2014 following time spent with the Institute of Group Analysis and Alzheimer’s Disease International. Elizabeth started her working life as a solicitor specialising in clinical negligence, practicing at Leigh Day.  Elizabeth shares the lessons she learned in law including:

  • Sometimes the law doesn't always deliver what clients are looking for. As a lawyer, try and identify a clients’ wider needs beyond simply the solution to a legal problem.
  • Be honest about your mistakes. The earlier you try to rectify them, the better. Learn from them and move forward.
  • Have the courage to move on. Be honest with yourself if your current role doesn’t feel right for you, and be open to opportunities to seek out a better fit.

Elizabeth also reveals how the support that people sought through LawCare was affected by the pandemic, and how workplaces are changing to better support and retain people.

LawCare is an independent charity offering emotional support, information and training to the legal community in the UK.
