I am a Paralegal in the Criminal Department, specialising in Appeals. Since being involved in my Universities Innocence Project in 2012, I quickly developed an interest for working on Miscarriages of Justice.
I have varied experience in the field, including interning at the Centre of Wrongful Convictions in Chicago, USA. Here I worked on the national database of exonerations and met with many victims of miscarriages of justice.
At the University of Sheffield, I was elected as the President of the newly formed ‘Miscarriages of Justice Awareness Society,’ which aimed to raise awareness of wrongful convictions. I also held the position of Amicus student representative; a charity which supports those on death row in America, believing the death penalty is disproportionately imposed. I graduated with a first class degree, and won a share in an award, recognising my efforts with miscarriages of justice.
Since starting at Jordans, I have also assisted with Crown Court Cases and have experience with cases of a historical nature.
