Helen Peden Pupillage

Garden Court North Chambers is delighted to welcome Helen Peden who has started pupillage with us today.

Helen spent the five years prior to pupillage working for NGOs within the refugee sector, including the British Red Cross and the Refugee Council. Helen also worked as a civil litigation paralegal at two national solicitors firms prior to completing the Bar Course.

Helen studied law at the University of Bristol, where she was a team leader at the Human Rights Implementation Centre and a caseworker at Innocence Network UK.

Helen is currently a member of the Haldane Society, Young Legal Aid Lawyers, and Human Rights Lawyers Association.

Helen said: ‘I’m delighted to be starting pupillage at Garden Court North, where I will learn so much by working alongside expert barristers with a commitment to social justice. I feel very fortunate to be joining a Chambers that matches my values and I hope I can utilise my skills and experience to support GCN’s work in a meaningful way.’
