Other information

Before coming to the Bar, Ryan completed his LL.M in International Human Rights Law at the University of Sussex. During his time at university, he co-founded Your Rights Matter: a small organisation which published articles online and visited schools and colleges to teach students about human rights law. He also carried out work for the Free Representation Unit. The following year, alongside studying for his BPTC, Ryan taught the law of evidence and criminal procedure to undergraduates. He also volunteered to assist with projects including Vocalise through which he and other BPTC students led debating classes for inmates at prisons around London.

Prior to joining 3RB, Ryan also spent a year working in the bribery and corruption division of the Serious Fraud Office on an ongoing investigation into a former FTSE 100 company.
