Background

Prior to pupillage, Nadia worked in Lesvos, Greece with the Legal Centre Lesvos (LCL) and Refugee Legal Support (RLS), providing legal assistance on asylum claims and family reunification applications. She worked on several successful applications for interim measures to the ECtHR regarding access to medical treatment and adequate living conditions. She has worked extensively with children and adults at risk, including victims of trafficking, torture and gender-based violence.

Before coming to the Bar, Nadia worked in policy and campaigns with leading human rights organisations including Liberty and JUSTICE. At Liberty, Nadia led work on Government plans to weaken the Human Rights Act 1998 and limit access to judicial review. She also worked on torture accountability, privacy and mass surveillance, migrants’ rights, and Gypsy, Roma and Traveller rights.

Nadia taught public law at UCL, was the Assistant News Editor at Just Security, and is an IAAS qualified senior immigration caseworker.

She has volunteered with organisations including the Hackney Community Law Centre, Akwaaba and the Free Representation Unit.

Nadia was awarded the Laura Devine prize for best performance in human rights at LSE. She was also awarded scholarships from Inner Temple and City Law School to fund the BPTC. Her work in Greece was supported by an Internship Award from Inner Temple.
