Toslima Islam

Toslima joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in October 2018 as a paralegal in the abuse department.  Toslima works alongside Dino Nocivelli, assisting him in representing survivors of childhood sexual abuse in cases against religious institutions, the Scout Association, private schools and other organisations – particularly sporting institutions – as well as claims against individual abusers.

She studied LLB Law at University of Westminster in which she was awarded a 2.1 and went on to complete the Legal Practice Course with Masters at the University of Law in Bloomsbury, London.  She completed this in Summer 2018 and achieved a distinction level.

Before joining Bolt Burdon Kemp Toslima worked as a legal assistant in a firm within her home town which specialised in childhood sexual abuse.  She has been actively involved in cases against a variety of defendants such as religious organisations, schools, Scout Association and local authorities while also assisting in cases involving accidents at work, public liability and Criminal Injuries Compensation claims.

Toslima is interested in raising awareness of abuse within Islamic organisations which can be prevalent but not often reported due to cultural stigmas and has previously drawn attention to the lack of proper safeguarding policies relating to children in mosques and madrassas.

Outside of work Toslima enjoys travelling and exploring London’s fine dining eateries.  She is also passionate about inspiring young people from her local area to aspire to achieve and has delivered several presentations and talks to local schools regarding her ongoing career in law.
