Meet Jair

Jair Beckles

Jair joined McAllister Olivarius in 2022 as a US Legal Analyst. She was drawn to the firm because of the focus on anti-discrimination and championing those who have suffered injustice. Her background in politics together with her personal and academic interest in race and intersectional feminism have primed her for a legal career centred on equality and justice.

Jair received her BA in International Studies from Goldsmiths College, University of London where she wrote a First-Class dissertation on race in America. She later received her LLB from the University of Birmingham.

Her travels, volunteering, and transatlantic childhood have given her a unique perspective and a passion for people. In her free time, she enjoys baking, reading horror novels, and playing with her cat, Gus.
