I have recently qualified as a solicitor into the Civil Liberties department. My work focuses on civil actions against the Ministry of Defence and also the police, inquests involving deaths in custody and detention centres and human rights abuses in care homes.
I qualified as a solicitor at Pinsent Masons LLP, leaving on qualification to pursue a career in human rights/civil liberties. I have since worked on a human rights/environmental pollution case in Nigeria and most recently worked as the judicial assistant to Lord Justice Maurice Kay at the Court of Appeal. This has given me exposure to judicial reviews involving issues of human rights, immigration and social welfare.
I initially joined Hodge Jones and Allen on a short-term contract to assist in the preparation of a particular human rights case against the Ministry of Defence.
