Six members of chambers participate in Inner Temple outreach events - Apr 2019
Rajkiran accepts instructions in all areas of Chambers’ work and is developing a broad practice, particularly in clinical negligence, personal injury, inquests and public law and human rights. Kiran joined Chambers as a tenant in September 2018 following successful completion of a 12-month pupillage.
Kiran has appeared in court in a variety of civil hearings on behalf of both claimants and defendants. She has also appeared in the coroners’ courts, notably instructed by AvMA to represent a family in a 3-day inquest concerning the death of an 86-year-old man who died in a hospital waiting room.
She is instructed by the Grenfell Tower Inquiry to assist with redactions and disclosure of a wide variety of material. She has also been instructed by HMRC to advise on liability and quantum in pre- and post-issue personal injury claims brought by employees. She has also been instructed by the Met Police as independent counsel to review seized documents for legal privilege.
During pupillage at 1 Crown Office Row, Kiran experienced the full breadth of Chambers’ work, particularly clinical negligence (claimant and defendant), public law and human rights, inquests and professional discipline matters.
Prior to commencing pupillage, Kiran interned in Rome, for the UN World Food Programme; in Dhaka, for the Bangladesh Legal Aid Services Trust and in London, for the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law. She also volunteered at Southall Black Sisters, assisting black and minority-ethnic survivors of domestic violence access help and support, including legal advice.
While studying in New York, on the prestigious Fulbright exchange Programme, she worked for NYU’s Reproductive Justice Clinic, assisting in successful litigation to strike down a repressive law targeting pregnant woman suspected of consuming drugs or alcohol as constitutionally invalid.
She has also participated in the Jessup moot, as both a mooter (2013) and a coach (2015), winning the UK national rounds in Gray’s Inn, and individually ranking 19th at the international finals out of over 500 participants in 2013.
