Zeynep Baykam
Hi, my name is Zeynep and I am running for one of the Marketing Officer positions! I am an Arts and Sciences student, focusing on law and cognitive neuroscience, and I joined LfA at the beginning of this year. Throughout the year, attending almost all of LfA’s events not only gave me valuable insights into the application process for vacation schemes and TCs, the transitioning period of a non-law trainee, and the day-to-day practice of an experienced solicitor but also helped me figure out which areas of commercial law I would be best suited for. Therefore, I am very excited to advertise the same opportunities that have been personal guides for me to all members, especially new incomers. I believe that the transferrable skills like leading, organising events and projects, and volunteer recruiting I gained through my experience working as a non-profit branch president and a project coordinator, as well as some graphic design experience, will help me advertise LfA across campus and to potential sponsors, and run our socials smoothly. If I’m elected, I will make sure to keep the socials engaging and active and reach out to a larger variety of sponsors from different areas of law.
Aashna Acharya
Hi, I’m Aashna Acharya and I believe that I would be an asset to the Law for All team as Marketing Officer simply due to the fact that three years ago, I thought I was going to be a Doctor. As a once directionless 17-year-old thrust into a hasty commitment to a career path, I understand first-hand how daunting the prospect of a late switch to law can be. As Marketing Officer, I aim to tailor the LFA social media pages to empower other hesitant students like myself to explore their interests and feel that they are capable of truly contributing to an alternate society’s efforts. To achieve this, I propose ‘No Dumb Questions’ Instagram Q&A panels for the social media lurk-ers who are lost in the blur of master classes and workshops. With a background in marketing, I believe I have an experienced perspective on what attracts viewers and would love to use my creative skills to grow LFA’s reach through visually attractive posts and the addition of video summaries that recap LFA events. Thank you for reading my manifesto. Allow me to help attract other 'Doctors' to explore a more fitting route.
Nurjennah Amin
Hi! I'm Jennah and I'm currently a first-year LLB student. I'm standing as a candidate for the LfA Marketings Officer because to keep things simple; it's a position that I know I'll thrive and do the very best in.

Currently, I am a Human Rights and Activism Executive under a UK & Eire Malaysian Law Students' Union. In that post, I am responsible for designing graphic content to post on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, creating captions for online content. As such, marketing (especially social media centred marketing) is something that I am very familiar with. As for marketing to potential sponsors and advertising events, I was in charge of a student-led team in my college's annual two-day charity performing arts festival. Out of the 4 years the event had been running, the year that I was in charge, we had the biggest student turnout of 500 compared to the 200-300 threshold in previous years! Our team also managed to raise an equivalent of £1,000 pounds for charity through donations alone for Mercy Corps' emergency response faction.

Should I get elected as one of the Marketing Officers, I will be open to listening any ideas or concerns in order to give my very best and to meet the standard that the society and the members hold themselves to in regards to the content we produce and the work we do. As Marketing Officer, I will also work well with my partner in ensuring that any information that prospective or current members would need is easily accessible to everyone!
Ye-Young Chun
I believe I would be a good fit for this role as I have prior experience in marketing and design. I have been involved in advertising numerous events by creating posters, leaflets and programmes for e.g. sports day, mental health awareness day, and fundraisers for charities such as comic relief for red nose day. Most importantly I have a personal interest in design which I believe will help me in my role as a marketing officer (if elected).
If elected I will endeavour to make the LFA social media platforms vibrant and welcoming and will do my best to spread awareness for the events put on by LFA to help members become better informed of the opportunities available to them. I believe this is an important role as I believe efficient marketing and communication are integral in helping members navigate events and socials, thus helping them gain a better insight into the legal profession.

Alexandra Dixon
Jonathan Lack
Hi everyone, I’m Jonathan, known for being the guy who ends up saying ‘I’m studying Russian’ at every event.

Why Me?:
- Understanding of Law for All’s values, having attended a number of events in 2018-2019.
- Understanding of basic marketing principles working on a branding project with the UCL Advertising Marketing and PR society.
- Curious about both marketing & strategy and legal/commercial issues.

My priorities upon election:
-To help promote new-ish initiatives such as the LFA blog and LFA podcast.
-To maintain the fun, inclusive culture LFA already has.
-To create meme tier content on LFA’s social media channels, especially about the application process and those pesky cover letters.
