Aadhithya completed her first six Pupillage under the supervision of Timothy Bowe, Head of Pupillage at St Ives Chambers, and saw a wide range of both public and private children work. She has also assisted senior members of chambers in a number of serious public law proceedings involving children.
Aadhithya has thus far been instructed in both private and public family work and looks forwards to receiving further instruction commensurate to her call.
Aadhithya has particularly valuable experience and sensitivity in dealing with vulnerable individuals and those with mental health concerns through time spent working in the NHS with the Greater Manchester CRISIS outreach and Mental Health Teams. During this time she operated the Mental Health Services non-emergency help line and is familiar with psychiatric and psychological assessments of those with a wide range of mental health and learning difficulties.
Aadhithya was previously employed by the Civil Service as a Home Office Presenting Officer, representing the Secretary of State in asylum and immigration claims. Accordingly she is well versed in conducting proceedings through the assistance of interpreters.
Before commencing pupillage at St Ives Chambers, Aadhithya spent six months working in the USA with the Jackson, Mississippi Office of Capital Post Conviction Counsel, investigating and providing legal services on final stage Death Penalty cases. During this time Aadhithya routinely met and conducted conferences with clients incarcerated on “death row”, interviewed a wide range of witnesses, professionals and jurors and investigated historic crimes. This was done alongside the general breadth of paralegal duties such as drafting notices of appeal, skeleton arguments and extensive legal research.
