Jasraj joined chambers as a third six pupil in October 2021. During his pupillage, Jasraj began to build a broad and busy civil court-based practice. As a third six pupil at 4-5 Gray’s Inn Square, he is now looking to develop that practice by accepting instructions across chambers’ practice areas, but particularly in commercial & chancery, property & housing and professional discipline matters.
In 2016, Jasraj graduated from the University of Kent with a First-Class degree in Economics having undertaken a placement year in sales and finance at a multinational FMCG company. From an early stage in that placement year, he was given the responsibility of managing his own accounts and clients and often presented the company’s new products to potential customers at tradeshows. After graduating, Jasraj worked as a researcher at a global public opinion and data company but whilst in that role, Jasraj realised that he wanted to do work that he considered to be more engaging, challenging and rewarding and so turned to the law. Whilst studying the Graduate Diploma in Law, he participated in various mooting competitions, including mooting in the Nuremberg International Moot Court twice. It was after these experiences that he dedicated himself to pursuing a career at the Bar. Prior to commencing pupillage, Jasraj worked as a self-employed County Court Advocate accepting instructions through a firm of solicitors. He represented clients in the county courts across London and the South East in matters ranging from road traffic accident small claims trials to landlord and tenant disputes, to applications for strike out and summary judgment in breach of contract claims. As a result of that work, Jasraj gained experience in managing his own caseload, identifying relevant information quickly and in building and developing working relationships with professional and lay clients.
Outside of his work, Jasraj is a keen sportsman. In his cricket, he recently scored 100 for the Bar of England against the Bar of Wales in Cardiff, and before that he represented the team at the 7th Lawyer’s World Cup in Hamilton, New Zealand.
