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.

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

Chambers & 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 & Partners 2013

 

"The front-line staff at Garden Court North are considered a real asset, with sources noting that the clerks are "helpful, friendly and easy to deal with." 

Chambers & Partners 2012

 

"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 & Partners 2011
