More about me…
My Experience – I qualified as a solicitor in 2014. Over the past ten years I have worked in a range of leading human rights and civil liberties law firms and non-profits including Reprieve, Louisiana Capital Assistance Center, Stonewall, Liberty, Bindmans LLP, Matthew Gold & Co, Global Witness, Hackney Community Law Centre, Hackney Migrant Centre and openDemocracy. Beside my legal human rights training, I have skills and experience in research, investigation, litigation, fundraising and campaigning.
My Objectives – I am dedicated to holding state and corporate power to account, particularly when such power is used at the expense of marginalised individuals. Having qualified as a solicitor, I now work as an independent consultant on research and campaigning projects with a human rights and legal focus.
Current Focus – I am currently Editor of openJustice which is part of openDemocracy. openJustice is an independent media platform dedicated to access to justice in the UK. We recently completed a media campaign, Voices for Justice, raising awareness of the human impact of the 2013 legal aid cuts in England and Wales.
