Call 2018

Jennifer joined 5 Essex Court as a tenant in September 2020 after successfully completing her pupillage. She accepts instructions in all of Chambers’ core practice areas and is part of the Government Legal Department’s ‘Junior Junior’ scheme. 

During her pupillage Jennifer gained experience across Chambers’ core practice areas, particularly police law. This included undertaking applications for closure orders, anti-social behaviour injunctions, and applications under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. She was instructed on the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse and is currently instructed on the Brook House Inquiry and Fishmongers’ Hall inquests. Jennifer holds a PhD in Philosophy and, before undertaking pupillage, volunteered with the Prisoners' Advice Service where her responsibilities included drafting representations to the Parole Board, responding to prisoners’ letters and phone calls seeking legal advice, and advising in person at prison clinics.
