Smith Moore Attorney Admitted as Solicitor to the Law Society of England and Wales

December 20, 2006

GREENSBORO – Andrea Carska-Sheppard, an attorney in the Greensboro office of Smith Moore, has been admitted as a solicitor to the Law Society of England and Wales.  Solicitors under English law provide clients with expert legal advice and assistance but do no ordinarily appear in trial and appellate courts.

The Law Society is the regulatory and representative body for 116,000 solicitors in England and Wales.  It is responsible for:  regulating and setting standards for solicitors; representing solicitors; supporting solicitors; and influencing law reform to achieve a better justice system.

"Being a solicitor is like being a member of the state bar in the USA," said Carska-Sheppard.  "It is a license which allows the practice of English & Welsh law."

Carska-Sheppard's Smith Moore practice focuses on international and federal intellectual property law.  She graduated from McGill Law School in Montreal, Canada with degrees in both Common Law and Civil Law.  She is not admitted to practice in North Carolina, but is admitted in New York, the Federal Courts of Canada, and the Province of Ontario.
