Chantel is currently completing her third six pupillage in Chambers and is under the supervision of Sheryl Nwosu, having obtained her full Practising Certificate earlier this year. She accepts instructions in all areas of criminal defence and has undertaken the appropriate training to deal with vulnerable witnesses.
After studying law, Chantel worked as an assistant to the Chair of one of the UK’s largest charities. After that she returned to studying and completed the BPTC part-time for the Bar alongside working full time for the Law Society of Scotland and volunteering with organisations like the Centre for Criminal Appeals.
Once she had completed her studies Chantel worked for the first part of 2018 in the Levsos Legal Centre in Greece, which is a legal centre supporting asylum seekers based in the Moria Refugee camp and detention centre. Most recently she worked as a paralegal in the Dispute Resolution & Litigation department at BWB.
