Profile / Experience
I am a Caseworker within the Public Law department at Duncan Lewis. I work with a team of solicitors, trainees and caseworkers under the supervision of solicitor Sulaiha Ali and public law director Toufique Hossain.
I work on a broad range of human rights claims and judicial reviews. In particular, I have taken instructions in a number of unlawful detention and false imprisonment claims. I engage in advocacy in the First-tier Tribunal for immigration bail matters. I also work on international protection, initial asylum claims, fresh claims and other immigration matters.
I have worked on high-profile cases such as seeking a stay on the Jamaican Charter flight scheduled in February 2020 and the Detention Action challenge to immigration detention during the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
Before joining Duncan Lewis, while studying in the Netherlands, I interned at Amnesty International’s Centre for International Justice in the The Hague, predominantly advocating for defendants’ rights at the International Criminal Court. My Masters in Public International Law specialised in International Humanitarian Law, with a thesis focussing on the legality of arms sales to Saudi Arabia in light of breaches of international humanitarian law in Yemen.
