We are delighted that DPG’s Trainee, Georgina Colegate-Stone qualified as a Solicitor on 15 July 2020. George has successfully completed her training at DPG and has been offered a permanent position as a solicitor here.
Before joining DPG, George worked in Parliament for several years both as a political researcher and leading a MP’s casework team.
George trained in both DPG’s civil actions against public authorities team and our public law and discrimination team. During her training with Jo Eggleton, Christina Juman and Sarah Ricca in the civil actions against public authorities team she worked on inquests, private law claims and on complaints against the police and other government departments.
During her training with Sasha Rozansky, Robyn Taylor and Louise Whitfield in the public law and discrimination team she worked on human rights and public law cases, with a particular emphasis on migrant support and policy challenges and disability, race and sex discrimination cases.
Now qualified she will continue to work in a team with Sasha Rozansky and Robyn Taylor doing human rights, public law and discrimination cases and from the new year will also work with Jo Eggleton and Rajiv Nair in the civil actions against public authorities team.
“My highlight working at DPG has been working with some really inspiring clients holding the state to account. I am really excited to qualify at DPG and to be able to continue working with my colleagues on meaningful and strategic cases to advocate for social justice.“
