Pupil Barrister

Tetevi joined Chambers as a First-Six Pupil in April 2021 and recently completed his Second-Six. He is now a Third-Six Pupil under the supervision of Dermot Keating.

Prior to starting his pupillage, Tetevi was assisting a London-based firm of criminal solicitors acting for the defendants in an international SFO bribery investigation involving British nationals and key figures in a West African government. Alongside this work, he was a rapporteur for Oxford International Organizations, where his research focused on international criminal and international human rights law. Tetevi was the 2018 Lincoln's Inn Nicolas Bratza visiting scholar to the European Court of Human Rights. In this role, his work was divided between the Court’s Research Division, the Office of the President and he also undertook research for the British judge, Tim Eicke. He has also interned in the Legal Advisory Section of the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court and in the Appeals Chamber of the UN International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.

Tetevi has published two articles with Professor Jeremy Sarkin, former Chair-Rapporteur of the UN Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearances, relating to transitional justice and has written for several legal blogs, including EJIL!
