Before joining Farrer & Co, Sophia studied law at the University of Oxford and completed an LLM at the London School of Economics. During her studies Sophia volunteered with the legal team at Liberty and worked as a mentor in a local London school.
   
Since graduating, Sophia has interned at the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in Tanzania, and for the anti-corruption organisation Transparency International at their head office in Berlin. After her internship she continued to work there for almost two years.
