Jasmine Doust graduated from the University of Bristol with a degree in Law and went on to study a master's degree in Public International Law and Human Rights at Utrecht University in the Netherlands.
Having been engaged with the refugee crisis since 2016, Jasmine moved to Greece where she co-founded an NGO on the island of Samos, providing psycho-social support for refugees and asylum seekers fleeing war and persecution.
In 2018, she established the Samos Legal Centre, where a team of lawyers, graduates and interpreters provide pro bono legal advice through individual consultations, interview preparations and information workshops, and assist with family reunification to other European states under Dublin III.
Having witnessed the inhumane and degrading reception conditions of Greek refugee camps and the systematic breaches of basic human rights from the moment asylum seekers reach the continent, Jasmine is committed to protecting the rights and freedoms of vulnerable people and continues to advocate on behalf of refugees and migrants.
Jasmine is a Trainee Solicitor within the firm's Immigration & Human Rights and Dispute Resolution departments. Since joining the firm in January 2019, she has worked on a variety of matters including unlawful detention, citizenship, complex human rights cases, partner and visitor visas, professional negligence and with victims of domestic abuse.
