Maham is undertaking a pupillage in Family law, under the supervision of Patricia Pratt and Mark Senior.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Maham gained invaluable experience in all aspects of human rights and family law whilst working at two specialist solicitors’ firms. She regularly drafted pleadings, carried out comprehensive legal research and managed her own caseload. Maham has worked closely with vulnerable clients in particularly sensitive matters and has been commended on her ability to keep clients at ease even in the most difficult of situations.

Maham has also appeared in over 400 hearings as a County Court Advocate. She was regularly instructed to represent clients in a wide range of civil claims including landlord and tenant disputes, infant settlements, personal injury, debt recovery and insolvency proceedings.

During her time at BPP Law School, Maham volunteered as a Tribunal Friend at Taylor House Tribunal Centre where she provided administrative and emotional support to individuals who were facing deportation.

Maham completed the BPTC with an integrated LLM, achieving a Distinction overall and scoring an Outstanding in her cross-examination.

With a strong interest in Family law, Maham is keen to develop a successful and busy practice in this area.
