After twelve months of hard work and excellent feedback at Outer Temple Chambers, we are delighted to announce that Monique Bouffé and Christopher Meiring have joined chambers as new tenants following their pupillage. They are therefore now official chambers members.
Chief Executive Rebecca Priestly said “Warm congratulations to Monique and Chris who have joined Outer Temple Chambers as full tenants, following highly successful Pupillages. Monique & Chris are exceptionally talented and capable and we are sure they will thrive as barristers. We welcome them to the Outer Temple team.”
Head of pupillage, Saul Margo, has said “We are delighted that Monique and Chris accepted their offers of tenancy and have now begun what are certain to be fantastic careers as members of OTC. It is always a pleasure to see our pupils obtain offers of tenancy and then to succeed as members of Chambers. I have no doubt that is what Monique and Chris will now go on to do. OTC is very lucky to have them.”
Monique Bouffé began pupillage at Outer Temple in September 2021.
Immediately before commencing pupillage Monique worked for leading human rights organisation Liberty. Prior to coming to the Bar, Monique worked in the legal sector for seven years, specialising in finding innovative ways to make the law more accessible to members of the public.
Monique completed her first degree in History and Law at the University of Aberdeen, where she graduated with a First and was awarded the Forbes Medal in History for receiving the highest First in the History department. She completed her LLM in Public International Law at Leiden University.
Christopher Meiring commenced pupillage in with Chambers in 2021, sitting first with Jennifer Seaman (Pensions; Private Client), then Eliot Woolf KC and Will Young (Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence), and subsequently Naomi Ling (Employment & Pensions). He commenced his second six in 2022 and accepts instructions across the range of Chambers’ practice areas.
Chris began his studies reading medicine at Magdalene College, Cambridge, and Imperial College London. He then returned to Cambridge to read for an MPhil, during which he published research on prognostication in intensive care using machine learning, and received the top distinction. He subsequently practised as a junior doctor while undertaking the GDL (Distinction) and Bar course (Outstanding).
