Before joining chambers, Liam worked as a Committee Specialist at the Joint Committee on Human Rights, a select committee which comprises members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. During his time at the Committee, he managed several of the Committee’s inquiries, prepared briefing material for members on a wide range of human rights issues and drafted reports. He gained particular experience in immigration, protest law and employment.
He has also volunteered at Lawyers in the Soup Kitchen, a community pro-bono organisation in Brixton which provides legal assistance to members of the public. He provided assistance in areas such as family, housing, and social security. In this role, he developed the skills necessary to effectively work with vulnerable individuals, including those who had been victims of domestic violence, were facing homelessness or did not speak English as a first language.
Liam has also previously volunteered at North London Coroners’ Court, where he assisted the Coroner and Inquest Manager by preparing case files for inquests. He intends to gain more experience of inquest work during pupillage.
