Garden Court North Header Image - Peoples rights through justice




Welcome to Garden Court North Chambers.

Formed in 1996, we are a progressive set of barristers with a strong commitment to publicly funded work and to offering representation to those disadvantaged by discrimination and inequality or with multiple and complex needs. This ethos underpins our emphasis upon criminal defence and civil rights based work in all the areas in which we practice.

“the clerking is exceptional – there is good rapport between clerk and counsel, meaning work gets turned around quickly”

Chambers and Partners 2015

“very well respected for the quality of the advice and representation it offers claimants in a wide range of public law matters”

Chambers and Partners 2015

“the level of service provided by [the GCN clerks] team is ‘always first class’”.

Legal 500 2014

"Garden Court North has established a strong practice in the field of claimant-based human rights"

Chambers and Partners 2014

 

"This set's civil liberties and human rights offering is founded on a strong commitment to the representation of disadvantaged and vulnerable individuals..."

Chambers and Partners 2013

 

"an impressive set that houses barristers who are 'prompt, [and] approachable' ...Solicitors favour the individuals here not just because of their evident legal skills, but also because they provide extremely useful seminars, newsletters and ad hoc advice." 

Chambers and Partners 2011
