Centre for International Law 'Law in Practice' session: '(Work)Life after LLM'
The Lady Hale Moot Court, 8-10 Berkeley Square
This event is open to current University of Bristol Postgraduate Law students:
The Centre for International Law is pleased to be welcoming back two of our graduated LLM students from 2021/22. Ellise Gray and Vithyah Chelvam will be discussing life post-LLM - in particular, their paths into employment so far - followed by a Q&A.
After finishing her LLM in Human Rights Law, Ellise Gray moved to Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina where she worked at the Post-Conflict Research Center for 5 months, specialising in women's rights after conflict and projects focusing on peacebuilding within the Balkan States. She is currently based in The Hague, Netherlands working as a Junior Project Officer for Gender Concerns International, an NGO focused on women's rights and gender equality in Africa, the Balkan States and the Middle East, before she embarks on travels to South Africa and Tanzania after the summer to fulfil her dream of working with women's rights and post-conflict NGO's in Africa.
Vithyah Chelvam completed her LLM in Human Rights Law last year. She is currently a pupil barrister at the Crown Prosecution Service. Prior to taking up pupillage, Vithyah was a paralegal at the Serious Fraud Office, the Infected Blood Inquiry, Pump Court Chambers and Kingsley Napley LLP. In 2018, she was awarded the Sir Joseph Priestley scholarship by the Inner Temple to assist attorneys on death penalty cases in Georgia, USA.
