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.

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.
