JD, B. Social Research and Policy, GDipLegalPrac

e:

After graduating from a Bachelor of Social Research and Policy from University of New South Wales in 2015, Keeli commenced her Juris Doctor at the University of Technology Sydney. Keeli graduated from her Juris Doctor in 2019 and subsequently completed her Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice and was admitted as a solicitor later that year.

During her studies, Keeli volunteered at the Marrickville Legal Centre and was a researcher for the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Services. She also undertook an internship experience through UNSW where she assisted in developing programs to assist with the economic, social and political structure on the island

Prior to working for O’Brien’s, Keeli was working as a conveyancer at a property law firm.

As a civil lawyer, Keeli focuses on actions against institutions for a variety of matters.

Keeli has worked on a number of matters including:

  • Malicious prosecution;
  • Historical childhood abuse; and
  • Intentional torts against NSW and other states and institutions for:
    • Assault
    • Battery
    • Unlawful Arrest; and
    • False Imprisonment.

Stemming from her Bachelors degree, Keeli has a particular interest in policy and human rights issues. The intersection of human rights and the law has piqued her interests, with her current role helping her to explore those issues in detail.

“It’s interesting to see how community or grassroots movements tend to impact the evolution of those areas,” she stated.

” The Black Lives Movement is an example of this. Grassroots movements will pop up in response to issues that are being ignored. I am a big believer in the power of the people. Historically, we have seen that these movements can change history. It’s important that we all use our positions as members of the community to push for change, when we believe that the current laws aren’t reflecting community standards”

At the root of a case of an intentional tort is a person that has been harmed in some way. In relation to civil matters, Keeli’s professional approach focuses on the client and respecting their story.

“I have always felt a personal responsibility and obligation to use my position in society to help other people in the best way I can. It’s important to me that i not only provide the best legal options and avenues available, but to ensure that the client’s story is heard, understood and respected”
