Our professional clerking staff can help you identify the right barrister for your case.

Imogen joined Chambers after successful completion of the Outer Temple Chambers Extended Pupillage Scheme in association with FRU (Free Representation Unit) in May 2017. She is 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 unfair dismissal, wages, whistleblowing, direct and indirect discrimination claims, on a pro bono basis. Imogen is most proud of the re-engagement order granted to one of her pro-bono clients. She started her formal 1st six pupillage based at Outer Temple in March 2016.

She remains dedicated to pro bono work and has volunteered for the Personal Support Unit, Nottingham Law School’s Legal Advice Centre, and Bail for Immigration Detainees, in addition to the time she spent with FRU.

Before being called to the bar, Imogen worked as a barrister’s assistant, with responsibility for managing direct access clients; as a result she has excellent client care skills. Imogen studied the BPTC at Nottingham Law School, where she competed in multiple advocacy competitions and reached the final of the annual Ropewalk Mooting Competition. Imogen read law at the University of Nottingham.

Public Law

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 [2016] All ER (D) 16)
•   Court of Protection cases

Imogen has now undertaken public law work in her own right. She has drafted immigration grounds for GLD, represented immigration detainees through Bail for Immigration Detainees in bail hearings on a pro bono basis, and has recently been instructed as a junior on the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.
