I am a human rights lawyer working as a human rights researcher and writer.

More about me

My Experience – I am a qualified solicitor who has been working, for the last five years, as a legal researcher, writer and journalist. I have worked in a range of leading human rights and civil liberties law firms and NGOs, including: Reprieve, Louisiana Capital Assistance Center, Liberty, Bindmans LLP, Matthew Gold & Co, Global Witness, and the Hackney Migrant Centre. I have experience and skills in research, investigation, writing, litigation and fundraising.

My Objectives – I am dedicated to holding state and corporate power to account, particularly when such power is used at the expense of marginalised people. I use my legal background alongside research and reporting to uncover and expose injustices in the legal system.

Current Focus – I am founder and editor of openJustice, part of openDemocracy, reporting on issues impacting the rule of law and UK justice. I am also working with the not-for-profit criminal defence law firm Commons on research relating to a policy that requires defendants to state their nationality in open court at the start of their criminal case.
