Richard is a paralegal in our Legal Team responsible for conducting legal research and providing administrative assistance.

He recently completed his LLM at the University of Cambridge and holds a BA in Law from the University of Oxford. At Oxford, Richard won the Law Faculty Human Rights Law Prize and was selected as a Bonavero Institute Student Fellow in 2022. The Student Fellowship supported a placement at the AIRE Centre, where he worked in strategic human rights litigation.

In addition to his placement at the AIRE Centre, Richard has worked in a range of legal research roles focused on public international law, human rights law, and LGBTQ+ rights issues. For instance, he was previously commissioned by the Ozanne Foundation to draft a report on how to ban conversion therapy in the UK, and published a paper on this topic in the European Human Rights Law Review.
