Overview

Amanda Fernandez is a second six pupil barrister. She joined 3PB in October 2020 and is based in London.

Amanda has won a number of scholarships including an advocacy scholarship for her cross-examination skills.

Prior to pupillage, Amanda worked as a County Court Advocate through LPC law. She received instructions in a range of pre-trial hearings and possession hearings.

Amanda has undertaken a range of pro bono work. She volunteered at the Free Representation Unit where she represented clients in employment disputes and obtained two favourable settlements.
