Aya El Kady, LLB(Hons), GDLP


BRANCH: Glenroy

Aya graduated from Monash University in July 2021 with a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) through the Vice-Chancellors Scholarship program. She is due to complete her Master of Laws with the University of Melbourne in 2024.

Aya has always had a passion for the humanistic side of the law, such as matters concerning refugees, migrants, and Family Violence victim-survivors. Joining Bardo Lawyers in 2020  was a natural transition for Aya, where she found her calling in Migration Law. Witnessing the effects of generational trauma and distrust of authorities within her own community, Aya believes that compassionate and culturally sensitive advocacy is the first step to repairing the dilapidated relationship between marginalized individuals and the legal system.

Prior to commencing with the firm, Aya gained extensive experience with the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre, Springvale Monash Legal Centre, South-Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault,  Duffy & Simon, as well as clerking with top-tier firm HWL Ebsworth. Aya’s unwavering dedication has been recognised by notable achievements, as recipient of Human Appeal’s Muslim Achievement Award (2016), being selected to represent Monash University at the  Phillip C. Jessup International Moot Competition in Canberra (2019), and First Place winner in the Dennaoui Lawyers Student Awards Competition (2020).

As a first-generation Egyptian-Australian, Aya is fluent in both English and Arabic.
