Alison Ross graduated with a 1st class degree from Christ Church, Oxford, and went on to practise – miserably – at the London Bar, handling a variety of civil law and criminal law cases. She later made the switch to journalism and, working for the newly founded Global Arbitration Review, was delighted to find that her job took her to Singapore, Rio and Mauritius rather than to dismal English county court buildings on the edge of shopping precincts. She has been GAR’s Editor since 2010 and continues to write for the publication as well as edit her team members’ work. She has also written for London’s Evening Standard.
