It is such an honour to have been called to the Bar of England and Wales by my Inn, The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple.
I absolutely love constitutional law. My favourite ever case is M v Home Office ( 1 AC 37) and constitutional law is one of the top three areas I wish to practise in should I ever have the opportunity to go to the Bar.
I was therefore overwhelmed with happiness that My Call was proposed by former Lord Justice of the Appeal Sir Stephen Sedley, who is a Master of the Bench at Inner Temple.
In his time as a senior judge in the Court of Appeal, Stephen did so much to advance the development of constitutional law and, though now retired, he still writes and lectures prolifically. I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing start to my career as a barrister than to have him propose me.
Thank you again to Sir Stephen Sedley and to Inner Temple for the amazing support they have given me in my legal career thus far.
