Jim McDonnellTrustee – Minerva Learning Trust

I am a solicitor, living and working in Sheffield, since arriving to study at University, several years ago. I am a Senior Associate in a large law firm, specialising in the use and protection of intellectual property (IP).

I am also the regular IP columnist for The Law Society Gazette. Elsewhere, I am a keen guitarist and mountain biker (not at the same time), as well as an Assistant Producer for my wife's theatre company, which has recently taken its first full production on a sell-out run, nationally.

I have had the great privilege of working as a governor of Handsworth Grange Community Sports College, since 2012, and whilst I cannot take any credit for the great successes achieved by the staff and pupils of the school, I am immensely proud to be associated with it.
