Kwame commenced his pupillage in October 2022 and is currently supervised by Rebecca Foulkes.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Kwame worked towards criminal justice reform in a number of roles. He worked as a Senior Associate at a public sector consultancy providing support to the Ministry of Justice to improve their delivery of prison and probation services. He was also commissioned by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation to research way in which the process of legal aid funding for the criminal appeals can be improved. Kwame also mentors secondary school students in Croydon via his Bar School Buddy programme, which helps to provide training and support to students with an interest in pursuing a career in law.

In his spare time, Kwame enjoys exploring the world of film and has developed a small catalogue of short films he has directed.
