Joe joined JfKL as a youth advocate with the 2018 batch of Advocacy Year, and then moved to the legal team as a Trainee Solicitor eleven months later. He was born and raised in Glasgow by Londoners, so has a bit of a strange accent, and has lived in London since March 2017. After working various jobs in various countries, Joe decided to pursue his interest in politics and social justice by studying International Law in Tallinn, Estonia. He presented his BA research on mass surveillance at a human rights conference in Sussex University in 2018 and worked as a paralegal in a mental health law firm until joining Just for Kids Law. Outside of work, Joe enjoys science fiction, loud music and editing the Socialist Lawyer, official magazine of the Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers.
