Thanks for following my blog. My blog aims to promote awareness of current legal issues and how this affects you. Legal texts are usually mundane and read only by lawyers. However, the laws we live by (or do not…) affect our daily lives in many ways. Through my experience as a practising criminal lawyer, I hope to share some insights, views and ideas.
I have worked at Robertson O’Gorman Solicitors since 2005. We practise in criminal defence, administrative law (review of government decisions) and human rights law. It is challenging but rewarding work. Amidst the day-to-day grind of criminal lawyering, I try to engage in social justice as much as possible. I am a member of the Management Committee at Caxton Community Legal Centre. This is a fantastic centre that offers pro-bono legal services to disadvantaged groups.
In 2010, I decided to learn more about public law on an international scale. I completed a Masters of Public International Law from Melbourne University. This was an amazing experience that led to me working for a few months at the International Criminal Court (The Hague, Netherlands) in the Office of Public Counsel for Defence.
I hope you enjoy or learn from some of my posts. This is my first time blogging so I welcome suggestions.
