Rachel Vickers Is Formally Named Queen’s Counsel

Outer Temple is very proud to announce that Rachel Vickers has been formally sworn in today as a member of Queen’s Counsel at the QC Appointment Ceremony 2021.

Some of the finest legal minds have been sworn in today at Westminster Hall including Outer Temple’s Rachel Vickers.

Whilst the celebrations have understandably been scaled down due to ongoing Covid restrictions, Rachel was able to celebrate with family and friends including her proud clerk, Paul Barton and we all look forward to getting together as a Chambers to raise a glass as soon as we can.

Silks Day

‘Silks Day’ 2021, is the culmination of a rigorous application process to demonstrate excellence in advocacy in the higher courts. These appointments are made by Her Majesty The Queen and were announced in March, with the formal ceremony taking place in November.
