Chambers Shortlisted for the Legal Cheek Awards 2019
5 Essex Court is delighted to have been shortlisted for three categories in the Legal Cheek Awards 2019: Best Chambers for Quality of Work for Juniors, Training and Social Life. 5 Essex Court won Legal Cheek’s inaugural Best Chambers for Training Award in 2018.
Legal Cheek surveyed over 600 junior barristers and 5 Essex Court was awarded an A* rating in all three categories.
Legal Cheek observed: ‘This from a 5 Essex insider: “Junior members are in every big public inquiry or inquest, from Grenfell to UCPI. To give just a few examples, we had members acting on both sides in the high-profile Libyan rendition case of Belhaj (which settled with an apology from the Prime Minister) and another junior is instructed on a further similar Closed Material Procedure case behind it called Kamoka. Our third-six pupil (now tenant) worked on the case legalising homosexuality in Trinidad and Tobago. Another junior tenant is acting for the Mauritian Government in relation to the separation of the Chagos Archipelago from Mauritius.”’
