Jasraj is currently ‘on his feet’ as a second six pupil at Chambers. Jasraj accepts instructions across all of Chambers’ practice areas.
Having represented clients in the County Courts across London and the South East in a broad range of civil matters before commencing pupillage, Jasraj is now keen to build and develop his civil practice. He accepts road traffic accident, landlord and tenant, contract and general commercial instructions. He also accepts instructions in specific applications such as those for strike out, summary judgment and to set aside default judgments.
Jasraj also accepts instructions in all family law matters, covering both public and private children cases and proceedings for financial remedies.
Before coming to the Bar, Jasraj graduated from the University of Kent with a First-Class degree in Economics in 2016. After graduating, Jasraj worked as a researcher at a global public opinion and data company but whilst in that role, Jasraj realised that he wanted to do work that he considered to be more engaging, challenging and rewarding and so turned to the law. Whilst studying the Graduate Diploma in Law, he participated in various mooting competitions, including mooting in the Nuremberg International Moot Court twice. It was after these experiences that he dedicated himself to pursuing a career at the Bar.
Having completed his legal studies, and prior to commencing pupillage, Jasraj worked as a self-employed County Court Advocate accepting instructions through a firm of solicitors. As a result, Jasraj already has considerable experience in managing his own caseload, identifying relevant information quickly and establishing and maintaining working relationships with professional and lay clients. These are skills which he is now determined to put to use and continue developing as he starts his career at the Bar at Becket Chambers.
Outside of his work, Jasraj is a keen sportsman. Most recently, in December 2019, he represented the Bar of England and Wales Cricket Club at the 7th Lawyers World Cup in Hamilton, New Zealand.
