Personal Statement

Brierly’s interest in intellectual property and entertainment law stem from her work as a filmmaker and actor. Her creative and legal interests compliment each other, in particular, her interest in making intellectual property more compatible with modern artistic creations, and changing mental health culture in the workplace. After hours she is currently producing “Control”, a documentary on anxiety disorders in professionals.
