Ellie Stansfield


Leeds Junior Lawyers Division

Ellie is originally from North Yorkshire and graduated on the MLaw at Northumbria University in 2017. She then moved to Leeds where she has worked since.

​In September 2020, Ellie became a trainee solicitor at Blacks Solicitors, having worked there as a paralegal for a number of years. She is due to qualify in September 2022 into the commercial property team at Blacks.

In her spare time, Ellie plays netball in the Leeds JLD league for Blacks, loves exploring the coast and outdoors with her dog, Clem, and enjoys live music, a good book and time with her plants.

As chair for the Leeds JLD, I lead and support the committee and plan several exciting educational and social events and experiences for our members within the Leeds legal community. She is also the work experience coordinator for Blacks, reviewing and organising work experience placements weekly for students to undertake at the firm.
