Geeta has recently joined 1MCB Chambers as a pupil. Her interests and experience encompass domestic and international law and she is dedicated to using law to advance human rights.

Prior to pupillage, Geeta spent a year working as a paralegal at Steel & Shamash. In her role, she assisted in complex group litigation and a number of judicial review proceedings including R (Woolcock) v Secretary of State for Justice [2018] EWHC 17 (Admin) – a systemic challenge against imprisonment for unpaid council tax.

Geeta has secured advocacy experience defending prisoners in independent adjudications and representing claimants in the Social Security Tribunal as a volunteer for the Free Representation Unit.

After completing her Masters in International Law, Geeta spent two years working with different organisations that use litigation to pursue social justice and environmental protection. At ClientEarth she contributed to work in the area of EU chemicals management and access to information. Whilst at the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights in Germany, she assisted in transnational strategic litigation to promote corporate accountability. She gained further practical experience through volunteering with the Human Rights Law Network in India and Global Diligence LLP in the UK.
