Carin Hunt joined Chambers in September 2019, following her pupillage in which she gained experience across the core practice areas of chambers, including clinical negligence and personal injury, employment, private client, pensions, and public law.

Prior to the Bar, Carin read Law at St Catherine’s College Oxford, after which she became a Consultant at the UNRWA Dispute Tribunal in Jordan, dealing principally with UN employment law.

Carin has a background in Medical Ethics and Medical Law. She interned at the Global Health Ethics Department of the World Health Organisation in 2014 and then completed a Masters in Medical Law and Ethics at King’s College London (2015/2016), receiving a Distinction. Thereafter Carin held roles as a Lecturer at Trinity College Dublin, a Seminar Leader at University College Dublin, and as a Research Assistant in the Law Faculties of Oxford and UCL. She has presented academic papers in the fields of Neurolaw, consent systems in organ donation, and the regulation of human reproductive technologies.

Employment & Discrimination

Whilst a pupil, Carin was supervised by Andrew Allen whose broad practice gave Carin an opportunity to work on a wide range of employment and discrimination claims.

Carin has advised and represented clients in unfair dismissal, discrimination and victimisation claims, both at the liability and remedy stage. She has also represented clients in judicial mediations where settlement was reached. Carin also regularly appears at preliminary hearings, including those dealing with applications for strike out and deposit orders.

When acting on a pro bono basis for a Claimant alleging race discrimination, Carin received the following feedback from her opposing counsel: “Carin was meticulously prepared, her written submissions were excellent, as were her pleadings – but perhaps most importantly she was a natural and eloquent advocate who took only her best points with brevity and persuasiveness”.
