Meredith Major

PupilCall 2015

Meredith joined New Court as a pupil in January 2018. Prior to pupillage she worked as an usher in the Family Division of the High Court, observing court proceedings, providing assistance to High Court judges, lawyers and litigants inside and outside the courtroom and with administrative matters, such as the production of orders, in the office. This covered a full spectrum of family and Court of Protection matters, including international child abduction, “big money” financial relief, complex care, serious medical treatment and appeals from the Family Court.

Meredith was also heavily involved in the Inn’s student societies. She was President of the Mooting Committee for 18 months, judging and organising moots and writing moot problems. She mooted throughout university and afterwards at the Inn, winning internal competitions at both.
