I work in the Housing and Social Welfare Department. I work closely with the fee earners, assisting on a range of cases within the department. I also assist fee earners and clients at the Housing Possession Duty Scheme at Leeds County Court.
Prior to joining Minton Morrill in 2018, I studied Law (International and European) at the University of Sheffield. During my degree I also studied for a year in Utrecht (Netherlands) where I studied Dutch and Comparative Law. Upon completing my LLB, I studied Criminal Justice (LLM) at the University of Nottingham where I took particular interest in Human Rights Law.
I have previously worked for the Citizens Advice Bureau in Sheffield, while working there I assisted people with issues arising from Debt, Welfare and Housing. I have also previously been appointed as a member of the Independent Monitoring Board attached to HMP Lindholme in Doncaster in this role I assessed the prison in light of national and international human rights standards.
Since starting at Minton Morrill I have enjoyed meeting different clients from varied backgrounds and helping them with their housing and care needs. I feel our work enables people to access justice, ensure their legal rights are protected and helps guide them through what can be a complex and confusing process.
