  • Mr Reynold is not the only lawyer who has secured a seat in the new Parliament.

    Former Legal Executive lawyer David Nuttall has become MP for Bury North for the Conservatives, replacing retiring Labour MP David Chaytor, one of the MPs facing prosecution over his expenses.
    Mr Nuttall, who is 48, left school at 18 and joined a firm of solicitors in Sheffield as a trainee legal executive.

    Having become a Fellow and completed a law degree by correspondence from London University, David then decided to dual qualify as a solicitor in 1990. He eventually became senior partner of the firm he had joined from school, until selling the practice in 2006. We understand that Mr Nuttall qualified as a Notary Public in 1998 and now practises solely as a Notary.

  • BPP Law school is a reputable institution with schools around the country. The MP salary is slightly better than the trainee salary.
