Year of Call:
Imogen joined Chambers after her successful completion of the Outer Temple Chambers Extended Pupillage Scheme in association with FRU (Free Representation Unit) in May 2017. She is now developing a broad practice across all areas of Chambers’ work.
As part of her pupillage, Imogen spent six months doing casework for FRU. During her time in the FRU London office, Imogen represented clients in employment claims on a pro bono basis.
She remains dedicated to pro bono work and has taken EAT cases through the Bar Pro Bono Unit and provided pro bono representation at bail hearings through Bail for Immigration Detainees. This has provided her with first-hand insight into the challenges faced by clients in these specific areas.
Before being called to the bar, Imogen read law at the University of Nottingham and later studied the BPTC at Nottingham Law School. During her BPTC year, Imogen volunteered for the Personal Support Unit in Nottingham and Nottingham Law School’s Legal Advice Centre. Imogen also worked as a barrister’s assistant, with responsibility for managing direct access clients; as a result she has excellent client care skills.
Disciplinary & Regulatory
Imogen also accepts instructions in regulatory cases. As a second-six pupil, she represented a nurse in a 7-week hearing at the NMC, which involved eight nurses. Imogen made successful half-time submissions that there was no case to answer on two of the charges against her client.
The other advocates adopted Imogen’s submissions for the charge common to all eight nurses.
Her advocacy was described by others involved in this case as of a “standard to be expected of a more experienced advocate”. Her submissions were described as “sound and well-argued” and Imogen herself was described as “a rising star”.
