Lucy joined Chambers as a Third Six Pupil in April 2017. She previously read law at Queen Mary, University of London where she obtained a first class degree, and has studied for an MA in Medical Law at King’s College, London. She was called to the Bar by Lincoln’s Inn in 2013, having been graded Outstanding on the BPTC, as a Lord Denning, Hardwicke, Shelford and Buchanan Prize Scholar. Lucy has received a number of other awards associated with her performance in mooting competitions, contribution to pro bono services and to facilitate legal work placements abroad.

Lucy is currently under the supervision of Robert Salis, whose practice covers Chancery and Crime.

Previous legal experience

Pupil Barrister at Outer Temple Chambers                  

In 2016, Lucy completed pupillage at Outer Temple Chambers, a leading civil and commercial set in London, where she spent approximately three months specialising in each of the following areas: pensions and commercial law, employment, public law and clinical negligence, and undertaking a variety of associated written work.

  • Second six experience includes: preliminary hearings, strike-out applications and multi-day trials in the Employment Tribunal in claims across the full spectrum of employment law; CMCs, applications and small claims for breach of contract in the County Court; and acting on behalf of bereaved families and NHS Trusts at inquests and pre-inquest reviews in the Coroner’s Court, including regular appearances before the Senior Coroner for North London.
  • Through her inquest work for NHS Trusts, she has represented several senior medics facing accusations of shortcomings in care related to, for example: (1) the choice in medication administered to a patient; (2) the timing of an elderly patient’s discharge; and (3) the performance of orthopaedic surgery. She has attended hospital to conduct a conference with four surgeons implicated in a negligence claim for late diagnosis of stage 4 cancer and mis-management of a post-operative bleed.
  • During the practising months of her pupillage, Lucy’s clerks and pupil supervisors received consistently excellent feedback from external sources, including an Employment Judge, senior opponents, instructing solicitors and lay clients, in respect of her work. The feedback attests to Lucy’s conversance with difficult legal issues, personality and demeanour and, above all, her strength as an oral advocate.

Mentor and Duty Adviser at the Family Advice Scheme                               

As a means of maintaining advocacy experience post-pupillage, Lucy has represented litigating parties without legal aid in private law matters at West London Family Court before circuit judges, district judges and lay magistrates. Typical applications dealt with include non-molestation orders, child arrangement orders concerning contact and residence, and prohibited steps orders to prevent a parent unlawfully removing a child from the jurisdiction.

On leaving the scheme in March 2017, Lucy was allocated the SASH Award for Excellence by the FAS scheme co-ordinator, and presented by HHJ Middleton-Roy and HHJ Rowe QC, in recognition of her contribution to pro bono legal representation.

Private Tutor at Bloomsbury Law Tutors  2013-2014

In the past, Lucy has tutored undergraduate law students in equity and trusts, public law and international arbitration on an individual and small-group basis
