Mountford Chambers Welcomes New Pupils, Fatima Jama and Georgia-Mae Chung


Mountford Chambers are delighted to announce the addition of two new pupils, Fatima and Georgia-Mae.

Fatima Jama

Fatima was called to the Bar in 2019. Prior to commencing pupillage, she worked at the Financial Conduct Authority primarily in the Enforcement and Market Oversight Division. During her time in Enforcement, Fatima worked as an Appointed Investigator in the Wholesale 2 department where she assisted on investigations and bringing disciplinary action, civil cases and criminal prosecutions on behalf of the FCA with a focus on market misconduct.

Georgia-Mae Chung

Before being called to the Bar in 2021, Georgia-Mae gained considerable experience of criminal law and proceedings as a Trainee Legal Adviser at the Thames and Stratford Magistrates’ Courts. She spent every working day in court and sat across the spectrum of trial, overnight, sentencing, case management, and traffic courts with magistrates and judges. During this, she thoroughly advised magistrates, assisted unrepresented defendants in giving their evidence and presenting their mitigation, and observed a range of advocacy, amongst other experiences.

Pupillage at Mountford Chambers

The pupillage selection process at Mountford Chambers drew a pool of highly talented and driven candidates from across the legal landscape. After careful deliberation, the successful candidates were chosen based on their exceptional skills, outstanding academic achievements, and unwavering dedication to the legal profession.

Oscar Robins, Anjelica Smerin, and Anna Wright have also been selected to join Mountford Chambers and will commence their pupillage in October 2024.
