Jasmine Doust graduated from the University of Bristol with a degree in Law in 2016. Following this, she moved to Samos, Greece where she co-founded an NGO, Samos Volunteers, which provides psycho-social support for refugees and asylum seekers fleeing war and persecution. She held the role of coordinator for one and a half years, during which time she also fundraised for and established a legal office in collaboration with the Refugee Law Clinic Berlin.
The Refugee Law Clinic provides pro bono legal support through information workshops, individual interview preparations, and assistance with family reunification cases to vulnerable asylum seekers.
In 2017, Jasmine went on to study a master’s in Public International Law and Human Rights at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. She participated in the International Law Moot Court, where she won her case concerning terrorism charges and blocked assets against the Islamic Republic of Iran. For her case preparation and oral hearing, she received the highest mark in her class.
Jasmine now works as a Trainee Solicitor within the firm’s Dispute Resolution and Immigration & Human Rights departments.
She continues to support the work in Samos remotely through fundraising and awareness.
