Year of Call:
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.
Carin is a member of the Attorney General’s Junior Junior scheme. In this capacity, she acted as junior junior for a government department subject to a judicial review of its framework for awarding contracts to renewable energy companies, which was eventually withdrawn. Recently, Carin has drafted grounds of resistance in respect of judicial review of police response to a complaint from a member of the public.
Please go to the ‘Education’ section of Carin’s profile for details of this aspect of her public law practice.
