She started her career at Chapman Tripp, before moving on to Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley. Northover was most recently helping women and refugees and was a part of Victoria Legal Aid in Australia.

Gardi comes from Chapman Tripp. She will be spending several months in her new role before leaving New Zealand for her LLM at Harvard University.

The world-renowned lawyer was named Young New Zealander of the Year in 2017. She is a former child refugee.
