Farah Shames


Farah has joined Chambers as a tenant having successfully completed pupillage, and is available to take instructions in family law.

Farah is fluent in both English and Arabic, she studied law at Swansea University and graduated with first class honours. She then completed the BVS at London City University and was called to the bar in November 2021, moving to the North East for a specialist family law pupillage under the supervision of Gillian Kane, which she obtained immediately after completing her BVS course. During her pupillage, Farah gained valuable experience in both public and private family law proceedings and she accepts instructions in all areas of family law.

Prior to beginning pupillage Farah was an intern at Citizen Advice Swansea and the Law clinic in the Swansea Magistrates court where she gained real experience advocating for members of the public in unfamiliar and overwhelming circumstances. Farah prides herself in taking a client friendly approach to ensure the best outcome for those instructing her.​
