Chambers provides an out of hours service. If you call Chambers main number you will be diverted to the clerk on call who will be able to deal with your enquiry.
“Whilst I welcome the statement from the Lord Chancellor on proactive steps to be taken to resume Jury Trials, I wish to make my views as Head of Chambers publically known.
No Member of Church Court Chambers, from Queen’s Counsel to Pupil, will be required by Chambers to attend Court until it is safe to do so. This will require the Court Estate to be fully compliant with social distancing measures, for there to be drastically improved cleaning regimes and PPE to be readily available for all. Individual Members are of course free to make their own decisions and our hard working clerking team continue to work remotely and safely in order to liaise with instructing solicitors and the Courts.
I support fully the work of the CBA and the Bar Council. I know that all branches of the profession are working hard together to support the Justice System. I am grateful to you all.
However, there should be no misunderstanding: as Head of Chambers I will not put lives at risk to help oil the wheels of a broken system. I will fully support any Member of Chambers who does not feel safe travelling to or remaining at Court and any instructing solicitor affected by that position.
