Pupils Mira Hammad and Christian Weaver accept invitations to join Chambers

6 January 2021

Garden Court North is delighted to announce that our two outstanding pupils, Christian Weaver and Mira Hammad, have accepted our offer of tenancy. Christian and Mira will join our dynamic team of specialist practitioners and share our commitment to publicly funded work, to offering representation to those disadvantaged by discrimination and inequality or who have multiple and complex needs, to challenging the state, and to fighting for justice.

Before starting pupillage, Christian worked at INQUEST and Liberty, and is the author of The Law in 60 Seconds, available on You Tube and is on twitter @ChristianKamali. He has a fast-growing multidisciplinary practice encompassing criminal defence, inquests and public inquiries, prison law and immigration and asylum law. Christian has been working as part of the GCN team instructed on the Manchester Arena Inquiry.

Mira has a particular interest in criminal defence, inquests and public inquiries and civil actions against the police and public authorities. Mira has worked on the Hillsborough Inquests, the Grenfell Tower Inquiry and the Manchester Arena Inquiry. Before commencing her pupillage, Mira trained as a solicitor at Broudie Jackson Canter solicitors in Liverpool focusing on inquests and high value clinical negligence claims. Mira is an active member of Young Legal Aid Lawyers and is on Twitter @Mirahammad10.

Both Christian and Mira can be contacted through the Practice Management Team gcn@gcnchambers.co.uk.
