Audrey Cherryl Mogan


Prior to commencing pupillage Audrey was a Legal Project Manager at the European human rights law charity, The AIRE Centre, advising foreign nationals in prison and training organisations on free movement law. She developed a challenge against Operation Nexus, a joint initiative between the MET Police and the Home Office seeking to deport people with criminal convictions, which will be judicially reviewed in July 2017 (R (on the application of The AIRE Centre) v SSHD and Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis), and travelled to the refugee camps in France, Italy and Greece to document the impact of the Dublin Regulations on asylum seekers in Europe.

Audrey has nine years of experience working in human rights, beginning her career as a motivational speaker for the Canadian child rights charity, Free The Children. She worked for the genocide prevention NGO, Aegis Trust, in their offices in London and in Kigali, Rwanda, developing genocide education projects and conducting research on indicators of armed conflict. As a Legislative Drafting Assistant at the Ministry of Justice in Rwanda she supported the drafters develop discrimination laws and re-draft the genocide ideology law. Audrey obtained an MSc in Human Rights from the London School of Economics, with a focus on international human rights law, international humanitarian law and the use of force in armed conflict, and was awarded a grant from the LSE to travel to Sri Lanka in 2010 to complete her dissertation on the human rights abuses during the civil war. During her first-six in pupillage Audrey supported the peer review of the publication ‘Sex Workers and the Law’ for the drugs law charity, Release.
