Profile / Experience
I am a Caseworker at Duncan Lewis, working in the Harrow-based public law team under the supervision of public law director Toufique Hossain.
Working with a team of solicitors, trainees, and caseworkers, my role involves assisting the team with the day-to-day case progression and client or third party correspondence on a number of public law matters on both a private and legal aid basis. This includes matters involving asylum, human rights, immigration matters, and judicial review challenges.
My interest lies in trafficking and gender-based violence cases, and my final year thesis at university explored the legal and socio-cultural reasons behind the grave under-reporting of sexual violence in Japanese society. I have previous experience working in the non-profit sector in the UK, Nepal, and Tokyo. Most notably, I have worked on a human trafficking and child sexual exploitation project in Kathmandu, focusing on combating trafficking across the border of Nepal and India. I have further worked for an NGO in Tokyo that works to eradicate sex trafficking and exploitation in both India and Cambodia. In my free time I fundraise an extensive amount for different charities, including NSPCC, Street Child, Edinburgh's Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre, and Mind.
I am currently undertaking my GDL at BPP University on a part-time basis and will be taking my Level 1 Immigration Accreditation MCT in November.
