Hana Suzuki is currently a trainee solicitor at Norfolk Community Law Service (NCLS), an organisation she has been a part of nearly 10 years. Prior to undertaking her fellowship, Hana was an OISC Level 1 qualified immigration adviser at NCLS. Hana studied law and criminology at the University of Central Lancashire and completed her Legal Practice Course at the University of Law. In her spare time Hana enjoys playing touch rugby and is currently up for selection for the England Senior Mixed touch rugby team.
Through her work with NCLS Hana has seen the dedication, care and time advisers give to help clients. This has been a major influence and inspiration in the work she does and her keen interest in social welfare law. The work at NCLS has highlighted even more the need for the types of services NCLS runs to provide access to justice to those who are the most vulnerable in our society and the gaps that can be found in this area. Hana’s intended project as a Justice First Fellow hopes to address this issue, by enabling NCLS to provide a holistic service for victims of domestic abuse living in the UK that have no recourse to public funds.
