Host Organisation: Southwark Law Centre 2023

Nana Adusei

Briefly explain your most recent educational background and any work (paid or voluntary) you were doing before you began your Fellowship?

My academic background includes a degree in Psychology and Economics, followed by completing the GDL conversion course at London Metropolitan University in 2019 and an LLM LPC at University of Law, Bloomsbury in 2024 with electives in Immigration Law, Employment Law, and Advanced Real Estate. During my studies, I actively engaged in social welfare law, volunteering at Southwark Law Centre and ATLEU. I transitioned to paid employment at Southwark Law Centre as a Billing, IT, and Finance Administrator, pioneering paperless working at the Law Centre. I then joined the Immigration team as a paralegal on secondment.

Why did you want to apply for a Justice First Fellowship?

I was drawn to apply for a Justice First Fellowship because it was a great opportunity for me to fulfil my dream of becoming a social welfare solicitor. The Fellowship offers a unique opportunity to gain practical experience and training in areas of law legal areas focusing on inequality and injustice. With prior involvement in social welfare law and advocacy, I see the Fellowship as a chance to further enhance my skills and make meaningful contributions to legal reform. Moreover, the support and mentorship provided through the Fellowship program would be invaluable in helping me achieve my goals of becoming a skilled and effective advocate for marginalised communities.
