During her 2016 – 2017 pupillage at Arden Chambers, Rea successfully represented landlords and tenants in Chambers’ specialist areas, including in residential and non-residential property. As a secondee to a private registered provider of social housing, and thereafter to a local authority, she has gained invaluable insight into the workings of social landlords in housing and property litigation.
Rea completed a PhD in international development before studying law. She was awarded an Inner Temple major scholarship for her Bar Professional Training Course during which she volunteered at her local Personal Support Unit. She was employed in (business and asylum) immigration law where she became familiar with the Tribunal system and in drafting judicial reviews and appeals.
Rea has a particular interest in ‘right to rent’ cases and adverse possession.
