Crown Chambers Welcomes Fourth Pupillage Cohort
Following our continued growth and the success of our third pupillage programme, Crown Chambers is delighted to welcome its fourth cohort of pupils.
Our four new pupils commence their pupillage this week, working side-by-side with their experienced supervisors and running with various cases. Each of the four new pupils will initially focus on either criminal or family law matters.
Meet the Pupils:
Maya Hanson – Prior to pupillage, Maya spent two years working as a Prison Lawyer and Prison Law Supervisor. Maya attended at Her Majesty’s Prisons and represented, advised, and advocated for prison inmates throughout England and Wales on all issues of Prison Law, including prison adjudications and reviews before the Parole Board. Maya has worked alongside professionals including probation officers, psychologists, psychiatrists, substance misuse workers and other mental health experts. Maya is being supervised by Naomi Madderson.
Billy Torbett – Prior to the commencement of pupillage, Billy spent one year working as a County Court Advocate at a leading advocacy firm representing clients in an array of matters across the North-Eastern Circuit. He has acquired and enhanced extensive legal skills including advocacy, conferencing, and case preparation for a wide range of hearings such as housing disputes, infant settlements, procedural hearings, and small claims trials. Billy is being supervised by David Godfrey.
Kimari Storey – Prior to pupillage, Kimari worked as a litigation paralegal for one year at a Global Law Firm based in Manchester where she managed her own case load and gained considerable experience in all aspects of litigation. Before embarking on a career in law, Kimari served in the foreign service of Saint Lucia, including a diplomatic posting for six years in Washington, DC. She has conducted an internship at the Centre of Trade Policy and Law in Ottawa and worked in Dubai in immigration investment. Kimari is being supervised by Francesca Steels.
