Rehab commenced pupillage in April 2021 under the supervision of Gráinne Mellon, Stephen Simblet QC, and Peter Rowlands.
Rehab looks to develop a broad public law and civil liberties practice, with a focus on immigration law, court of protection cases, inquests and actions against the police.
Prior to commencing pupillage, Rehab worked as a judicial assistant to Lady Justice King and Lord Justice Moylan in the Court of Appeal of England and Wales.
She was also employed as a paralegal on the Infected Blood Inquiry. Whilst employed in those capacities, Rehab drafted fact-finding reports into alleged state abuse for the international NGO, Accountability Unit.
In addition, she worked as a research consultant for the UK People’s Uyghur Tribunal to Investigate China’s Alleged Genocide and Crimes against Humanity. Rehab has interned at EHRAC, the UN-ICTY and the UN-MICT. She has also volunteered for the Prisoners' Advice Service, Release, Amicus ALJ, Citizens’ Advice Bureau, ChildLine, and CAAT UK.
