After graduating with a BA (Hons) degree in English Language and Literature from Newcastle University, Nick lived and worked in Seoul, South Korea for four years. He subsequently completed the GDL at the University of Law, where he gained a distinction in his research project critically evaluating the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Nick joined Wilsons as a caseworker in 2020 and provides advice and assistance in a wide range of immigration, asylum and human rights cases. He is particularly interested in trafficking claims, LGBT+ protection, and ensuring that refugee status and citizenship are not deprived unlawfully.
Previously, Nick volunteered on the counter-trafficking team at the Helen Bamber Foundation and worked as an advocate on the Anti-Human Trafficking team at Hestia. Within these roles, he provided support to survivors of trafficking and exploitation at all stages of the NRM and asylum procedures, including assisting in criminal proceedings. He gained extensive experience of the UK’s duties to victims of trafficking and of working with those who have complex mental health needs. He went on to undertake a legal internship at UNHCR, assisting with interventions and providing comments on cases where the Home Office intended to cease, cancel or revoke refugee status.
