Amelia commenced pupillage with 2 Dr Johnson’s Buildings in October 2020. During her first six, she has observed a broad spectrum of Chambers’ work, including magistrates’ and Crown Court hearings, as well as public and private family law proceedings. She has also gained experience of written advocacy through drafting advices, applications and position statements.
Prior to pupillage, Amelia worked for an anti-slavery charity which provided support to victims of human trafficking and campaigned for policy reform both in the U.K. and abroad. In addition, Amelia volunteered with Support Through Court (formerly the Personal Support Unit) and The University of Law Legal Advice Centre supporting and advising clients through Children Act Proceedings. Through her work with the Legal Advice Centre, Amelia represented clients in FHDRA, DRA and Final Hearings.
Amelia is available to accept instructions in both criminal and family matters.
