When Kayleigh  found out that she had been nominated for the 2018 award, she was delighted that somebody had taken the time to put her forward.

“The shortlist for the Rising Star in Law category contains a very high calibre of fantastic women.  I am overwhelmed to have been named a Rising Star in Law winner and I hope that winning this award will highlight the work I have been doing to raise awareness and tackle the high levels of stress and mental health issues experienced by junior lawyers in the legal profession,” says Kayleigh Leonie.
