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.
During her pupillage, Imogen was fortunate enough to be supervised by Fiona Scolding QC. As a result she observed and assisted with:
- Education hearings in the SEN Tribunals
- Immigration matters for GLD
- Defending a claim for judicial review of the Legal Aid Agency’s application of the duty solicitor scheme criteria (R (on the application of MK Law Solicitors Ltd) v Lord Chancellor  All ER (D) 16)
- Court of Protection cases
Imogen is a member of the Junior Junior Scheme with the GLD and has been instructed on numerous disclosure exercises. She drafts immigration grounds for GLD, and has represented immigration detainees through Bail for Immigration Detainees in bail hearings, on a pro bono basis.
Her education practice is developing, and she has represented a school at an Independent Review Panel for the permanent exclusion of a pupil with special educational needs at which the parents raised concerns about disability discrimination. Imogen excels in dealing with issues surrounding discrimination and special educational needs because of the overlap with her experience in employment law. This is an area where she is keen to take on more work.
Imogen is currently instructed as junior counsel on the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.
