I am currently studying LLB Law and will be looking to pursue a legal career. During my teens I received a referral order for GBH, which is now a spent conviction. This offence was completely out of character and was done solely out of self defence. I don’t want this to ruin my career when I am applying for training contracts in the future as disclosure of this is necessary due to the legislation in place.
It would be of great help if people could give me some feedback on whether this is going to ruin my career or not, as Law is something I have always had a passion for and the one offence that was done completely out of the blue has been playing on my mind ever since.
