Prior to commencing pupillage, as a paralegal at Sonn Macmillan Walker, Keren prepared the defence in the extradition case of Cyprus v CD , alongside Ben Joyes. The Requested Person resisted extradition on Article 3 ECHR prison condition grounds. The client was successfully discharged, due to the provision of an inadequate prison assurance.
