Steven joins Garden Court as a pupil under the supervision of Mark Symes and Anya Lewis. He hopes to build a practice with a particular focus on immigration, public law, and criminal defence.

Background

Before coming to the Bar, Steven worked with vulnerable teenagers on projects which aimed to increase the educational attainment of underrepresented groups. He was later employed by the Ministry of Justice, gaining a unique understanding of the impact of legal aid reform. He left this position to obtain an MSc. His dissertation research – concerning NGO beneficiary accountability – was completed in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in association with major aid organisations including Oxfam GB, Concern Worldwide, and JP/HRO.

After completing his MSc, Steven assisted the United Nations Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials (UNAKRT) at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC). He later worked as an election observer for AEGEE (Romania) and the British Embassy Tbilisi (Georgia), and spent a brief period of time lecturing at Zaporizhzhya National University in conflict afflicted South-east Ukraine. More recently, he volunteered his time to assist with a challenge to capital punishment in Louisiana with Amicus ALJ.
