Aoise Keogan-Nooshabadi

2017/18 Fellow

Having recently graduated in Law and French from the University of Leeds, Aoise focussed her final year dissertation on the relationship between government austerity policies and the courts, looking particularly at the judicial decisions surrounding 'The Removal of the Spare Room Subsidy', polemically named 'The Bedroom Tax’.

At university she committed time to Legal Advice Clinics with Leeds City Council, helping claimants to fill Personal Independent Payment forms. She also has worked closely with fundraising projects in aid of Leeds Asylum Seekers Support Network and has volunteered with organisations such as Care4Calais and Council for At-Risk Academics. Now, Aoise is very interested in discovering how innovative and smart business strategies can be used in the context of social betterment.     

In her free time Aoise likes to cycle, play basketball and read.
