During the non-practicing phase of his pupillage, Jeremy gained experience in the areas of actions against the police, inquests and criminal appeals concerning victims of human trafficking.
Since starting to practice, under the supervision of Keir Monteith QC, Jeremy has successfully represented many clients in the Youth Court and the Magistrates' Court, in both tiers of the Immigration and Asylum Tribunal, and in the Family Court. He has a broad interest in public law and human rights, in particular in the areas of free speech, protest law and whistleblowing.
Alongside his legal studies Jeremy volunteered with Detention Action and the Bar Pro Bono Unit (now 'Advocate'), and undertook a traineeship at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. He served for two years as a member of the Young Lawyers Committee of the Human Rights Lawyers Association. Before training as a barrister, Jeremy worked as a priest. His undergraduate and postgraduate degrees are in music and theology, with a particular interest in post-holocaust discourse.
