About Garden Court Chambers
Chambers was set up in 1974 by six young barristers determined that the spirit which inspired the early Law Centre movement should find a place at the Bar. A strong commitment to the Legal Aid system and to offering legal representation to those disadvantaged by poverty and discrimination formed our founding philosophy. Our areas of practice include civil actions against the police, civil liberties, community care, criminal defence, employment, environmental law, family law, Gypsy and Traveller rights, housing, immigration, mental health, nationality, prison law, public and administrative law and professional negligence. Chambers now has 196 members with 23 QCs and, though our range of work and clientele is immeasurably broader, our original commitment remains and underpins our practice.
