Freddy Russell, Paralegal

Freddy completed the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) with a distinction grade from BPP Law School Manchester in September 2017. Prior to converting to law he studied a BSc in social anthropology at the London School of Economics, taking a particular interest in political and legal anthropology and writing extended essays on migration and human rights.

Freddy is passionate about safeguarding the rights of individuals in their relationship with the government. He worked as a full-time caseworker at the Habeas Corpus Project (HCP) from June 2015 until December 2016. The HCP provided pro bono representation to immigration detainees seeking to challenge the lawfulness of their detention status. His work included assisting with judicial review work and applications to the High Court and Court of Appeal, as well as advocating himself at bail hearings at the First-tier tribunal.

Having completed the GDL, Freddy is delighted to take up the role of paralegal at Kings Cross Barristers.
