Arcadius is a solicitor in the private client team. Arcadius completed a two year training contract with Trethowans before qualifying as a solicitor in July 2017.
Arcadius graduated in 2014 from Bournemouth University with a 1st Class LLB Law (Hons) Degree (Dissertation titled: 'Negligent Will Drafters and Disappointed Beneficiaries') before in 2015 achieving Distinction in Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice also at Bournemouth University.
During the first two years of his LLB, Arcadius successfully completed a number of voluntary placements with local firms of solicitors and barristers chambers. In 2013 on completion of placement at Dickinson Manser’s Private Client department, as part of his sandwich degree, Arcadius received hugely positive feedback from the Management Team and was invited to return to assume a newly created part-time position of a Private Client paralegal. He, therefore, continued his employment with Dickinson Manser whilst finishing his degree and then completing his LPC and was successful in securing a training contract which began in July 2015.
Away from the office...
Arcadius thinks it is fair to say that had he not come to Britain to study law he would have most certainly become a musician or a historian. His passion for music had begun at his early age when he studied classical guitar. Later, whilst studying History, he sang in an Academic Choir and performed on some prestigious stages around the world. Although, the demands of working and studying meant that in recent years Arcadius had to limit pursuing his musical interests mainly to listening, music remains a big part of his life – he very much enjoys going to opera, ballet, occasionally theatre and is a very keen Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra follower.
If he is not at work or at a concert he is most likely to be at a meeting of The Bournemouth Christchurch & Poole Historical Association or, as an active member of the Bournemouth District Junior Lawyers Committee, helping to organise its monthly events.
To meet the challenges of a busy lifestyle Arcadius trains regularly at his local gym.
