Jemima practices in criminal, regulatory and public law. She recently completed pupillage in chambers where she undertook seats in criminal, civil, environmental and public law. She was supervised by Gordon Menzies, Daniel Stevenson, John FitzGerald and Nicholas Ostrowski. In addition, she co-chairs the Society of Labour Lawyers’ Constitution Group and is the founder of a social enterprise called Thrive Future.

Previous work has been in policy and governance for NGOs and charities, including at The Law Society of England and Wales. At The Law Society, she supported a Legal Advisor on R (on the application of The Law Society) v Ministry of Justice [2018] EWHC 2094 (Admin) and SFO v ENRC [2018] EWCA Civ 2006 (in which the Society acted as intervener). Subsequently, she published an article on the legal issues of privilege in SFO v ENRC in the Lincoln’s Inn Law Journal. She also worked as a researcher for barristers in administrative, family and immigration cases where she drafted opinions, position statements, grounds of appeal and cross-examination.

In addition, Jemima was the Founding President of the University of London Legal Forum, volunteered in the legal team of the Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain and the Free Representation Unit, wrote case comments for the UK Supreme Court Blog and was a Trustee of the YMCA England and Wales.

Furthermore, Jemima completed an LL.M. in Environmental Law and Policy completing modules on Environmental Lawyering, the Law and Policy of Climate Change, Judicial Review and Judicial Decision Making. This provided an ideal foundation for a career at the Bar in environmental and public law.
