Lia gained experience in working in the Human Rights field, and developed a keen interest in the immigration and asylum field during her time at university through various work experiences and voluntary roles.
At university, Lia was heavily involved in volunteering abroad in countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Uganda and Thailand. Lia led various voluntary programmes overseas, and is still heavily involved with her chosen charity, Lasallian Developing World Projects today.
Prior to commencing her traineeship at Latta & Co, Lia was a development worker for the United Nations in Association with International Service. In this role, Lia carried out a six-month voluntary work placement in a legal clinic in Palestine.
