Hi! I’m James Lawson and I’ve just begun a week-long internship here at the Adam Smith Institute.

I currently attend Hampton School and I’m studying Further Maths, Economics and History; I’ve already completed French. My interest in free markets has developed as a result of my studies of Liberal England and economics. I’ve steadily become ever more cautious against excessive government intervention, while supporting a need for more freedom. I recently attended Freedom Week in Cambridge where I had a great time meeting others who held a similar interest and heard some brilliant speakers.

I wish to study an economics based degree at university and have been focusing towards PPE (philosophy, politics and economics).
