I am a Paralegal in the Civil Liberties department, having joined Minton Morrill in July 2017. I work on a range of matters within the civil liberties team, working predominantly on Actions Against the Police and Inquests.
Before joining Minton Morrill, I gained a range of experience helping vulnerable people in legal and third sector settings and I graduated with a Law (European and International) degree from University of Sheffield in July 2017, having undertaken a year abroad in Sweden as part of my degree.
Within my degree, I specialised in Human Rights and Public Law and I believe Actions Against the Police to be incredibly important; the police are in a position of trust where we rely on them to keep us safe and so I understand how distressing it can be for people when this trust is betrayed, especially when someone is vulnerable and in need of help.
As such, I help people hold the state to account and get redress for what has happened to them. This includes making formal police complaints and appealing to the IOPC where necessary and pursuing claims against the police force; such as, claims for false imprisonment, assault and misfeasance.
I also help guide families through the inquest procedure as part of a dedicated inquest team, this includes preparing for the inquest, applying for Legal Aid funding and representing the family at Court alongside a specialist advocate.
