Profile / Experience
I am a Caseworker at Duncan Lewis in the Public Law department. I work with a team of public law solicitors, trainees and caseworkers under the supervision of Sheroy Zaq and director Toufique Hossain. Most of the work I undertake involves assisting the solicitors with judicial review matters, particularly challenging the lawfulness of immigration detention. My role as a caseworker involves assisting the team with daily case progression and third-party and client correspondence on a wide range of public law matters.
In 2016 I was the winner of the LawWorks Junior Division Pro Bono Award, which recognises the pro bono contributions of trainees and solicitors between 0 – 5 PQE level.
Before joining Duncan Lewis, I volunteered as a caseworker at Bail for Immigration Detainees in the ‘Right to Liberty Project’, which represents vulnerable adults and long term detainees. I also volunteered as a caseworker at the National Deaf Children’s Society, representing children and young people in relation to appealing adverse disability benefit decisions of the Department of Work and Pensions. I volunteered at Reprieve in the Death Penalty and the Stop Lethal Injections projects (March – May 2017).
